Week 3 brought beautiful sites while in the field. This tree dominated the landscape and dwarfed the surrounding trees. I am sure this tree must have been standing for a great amount of time and has survived forest fire and logging. At this site we set up linear transects in the four cardinal directions. Many other co-researchers are also using these transects as well so our data willl coincide. Working in the lab this week was fun, I used the oven to dry my weeks soil samples. Will take some pictures for next week. Stay tuned folks!
