The ZADBI Collecting Sites: Zurquí, Tapantí National Park,and Las Alturas
Zurquí, our main collecting site, is a mid-elevation (1,600 meters high) cloud forest. Limited collecting will also take place at two other mid-elevation Costa Rican cloud forests with similar habitats: the nearby Tapantí National Park (40 km distant), and the more distant Las Alturas (180 km distant), near the Panamanian border.
