October 18, 2016:  Melany sent pictures from C5 and C6, because we were concerned about when to collect fresh litter samples.  “Lots of leaves still on, though I can judge fractions like Nat can with her field savvy!  Only saw a few PC, and they had some but not all leaves left, maybe a little under half?  Not sure.  I’ll look more carefully at c 2 but I think we have elevation in our favor at Bartlett compared to Jeffers Brook.”

October 25, 2016: Nat Cleavitt reported on conditions at Jeffers Brook: “I was not able to collect fresh (not visible) or basket (completely frozen to the baskets in about 1 inch of crusted snow).  The conditions also affect forest floor block work.  I will resume all field collections when weather warms and unfreezes.

“In other news, bobcat sighting and also fresh bear tracks coming down through the mid-age plot road.”
