Ala kommentaar: In bubaque island, on the road from the village Bijante to the it’s beach, the plots are located approximately 500m before the end of the road, both on the right side of the road. Tropical forest dominated by the palm tree Elaeis guineensis with some understorey composed of small trees, bushes and climbers. Thin layer of litter, and very aired soil with a lot of small roots. Little relief, as all the island is almost flat. Photos attached for more detail. Presence of termites and ants, as well as some monkeys and monitor lizards. Plot X is located in the direction of the beach whereas plot Y is located in the direction of the village. Both plot located at approximately 200m from each other, but are very similar. Elaeis guineensis. Plots are located close to a small road, used mainly by people accessing the beach, where very few motorcars pass occasionally. Palm trees in this area are explored for palm oil and palm wine. The vegetation in the plots is dense and there were no tracks of people indicating it is a relatively undisturbed site.
