Field assistants are an important part of any successful ecological project.
We are lucky to have with us Mr. Abhijit and Mr. Litan at the Tripura sites. In Orissa we have constant work support from Mr. Manoranjan and Mr. Sahadeb. Abhijit and Manoranjan with the help of Litan and Sahadeb help in long term monitoring of pollinating insects at the sampling locations. They also facilitate our liaison with the farming community.
