We are excited to launch another semester of research, teaching, and learning. During unprecedented times, we are grateful for being able to work and learn together. We welcome Angelica Bautista, a new graduate student coming from Northern Illinois University and experience working at the Nachusa Grasslands. We are so excited to have her join our lab! We also welcome back all of our undergraduate students, Eliza, Gus, Lydia, Michelle, and Sam, who continue to demonstrate resilience, determination, and enthusiasm during a very challenging time.
