Data Collection in Australia - Justin Clarke

April 15th, 2015 · No Comments

This week and last week have been dedicated to data collection for all of our different directed research projects.¬†This meant walking a LOT of transects through the forest and getting cut up by wait-a-whiles and getting ticks and sunburn, you know, the typical field work. In the afternoons we’d either go to the center and work on our papers or go out into the field again and collect sap. The nights were spent sitting next to E. resinifera trees to see if we could observe any gliders for some of the DRs. It’s been a pretty rough week but I’ve loved all the field work even if it has meant being exhausted and being up from¬†6 AM to 11 PM. I’m really excited to start analyzing all of my data next week. Hopefully my hypothesis is correct. This weekend we’re headed into Cairns and a group of us are going snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of pictures to share with everyone when I get back from it!
