- Worked with lead researcher Amy Symstad on project studying Annual Brome Adaptive Management. Data collection included conducting surveys of 5 parks in the Northern Great Plains using Arc Collector. This work was part of the USGS Cooperative Summer Field Training Program.
We are working on linking functional traits in plant and pollinator communities in Colorado forest and rangeland ecosystems in the context of biotic and abiotic disturbances. This work is expected to result in a comprehensive survey of pollinator biodiversity in the region, and build foundational knowledge of land use impacts on species diversity.
