First is spending time with plants. Easy. Go up in the greenhouse. The second will be to get out in the field. Let's see how that goes.
Today, I was up to check on a few projects. All are going really well.
Competition experiment for Ecology. Students plant seeds in different concentrations and combinations and will measure biomass at the end
Persimmon. These were seeds this spring. Looking awesome
Four groups of photosynthetic plants here. Small fern in the top left, liverwort in the top right, there's a moss between the two and down a few cm, then there's an algal film throughout.
Pawpaw seedlings. These just germinated and they've been sitting in damp soil for weeks. Super excited about these guys. I've never seen a pawpaw in the wild.
