Timor-Leste Terrestrial Expedition #39

'Collecting on the slopes of Mt Ramelau, the highest mountain. Insects and other invertebrates are often sensitive to changes in altitude because they may have associations with certain plants, temperature ranges and other physical factors that change with altitude. We sampled at different altitudes to try and get data on these changes in insect community composition. (Pictured: Dave transferring insects into sample vials)
