At the Rocky Mountain Research Station I assist with multiple studies ranging from lab experiments examining germination and storage requirements for big sagebrush (Artemesia tridentata) to field research on post-fire rehabilitation and native forb field production.  As an undergraduate student I researched how forest edges affect various characteristics of canopy-dominant trees in north Idaho.  I also assisted with butterfly surveys, vegetation surveys, and collected data to study nitrogen movement along forest edges.
