Sampling comments: "Two study sites were selected", namely, the Bahuaja site "accessed through the Bahuaja Lodge camp site", which is "45 km downstream" of the Tampobata Research Center site; "30 x 30 meter inventory plots were established between June 1999 and August 2001, six at the TRC site and four at the Bahuaja site... Plots were distributed in pairs, each plot of a pair separated by a minimum of 30 m" with one "a bamboo-dominated forest stand (B+)" and the other "a forest stand without bamboo (B-)" (so there are five plots in each category)
