Annie Schiffer, an undergraduate honor’s student in the Brosi Lab, reflects on her field season at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in an article featured by Emory University’s Environmental Science blog. Annie explains that although “we occasionally encountered problems, such as getting our car stuck in a snowbank and losing tagged individuals to grazing cows” she collected valuable data, which she has taken back to the Brosi lab to analyze. She’ll use this data for her honor’s thesis. Learn about Annie’s fieldwork experience, her future plans, her passion for plant ecology, and her time at RMBL in her article. In Annie’s words:
“RMBL draws researchers in and makes them fall in love with the traditions, the mountains, and the culture…. After learning from a variety of scientists this summer, I have confirmed that plant ecology is my passion, and I hope to work with some of the amazing RMBL researchers in the future. ”
Congrats, Annie, on a fantastic field season and wonderful article!
