Rachel Adams is a PhD candidate in the Ecosystem Science and Management department. Her research focuses on deep rooting tropical trees in the seasonally dry forests of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. With genetics tools and stable isotopes, Adams determined which species can grow deep roots into the caves and how their access to groundwater impacts above ground forest composition and productivity. Come hear about Rachel’s experience and what she learned!
Brie Myre is a PhD candidate in Biology studying sea turtle feeding physiology during reproduction. Her goal is to use physiology as a tool for conservation, as hormones can inform us about the cryptic behavior of these mysterious creatures. The central focus of Brie’s work is to advise the development of more effective conservation plans to aid Olive Ridley sea turtles in having more and healthier offspring. Come hear about Brie’s experience and what she learned!
