Spent the last few weeks in the mountains of California collecting Micranthes tolmiei and Micranthes bryophora! Thanks to the California Native Plant Society for providing funding for this trip. The Sierra Nevada was awesome as always, and though I am proud to be an Iowan there is something about the Eastern Sierra that always feels like home. I'll be uploading a few pictures from this California trip as well as continuing to post about my adventures in China now that I am back for the semester.
Also, a friend and colleague at UF started a pretty sweet YouTube Channel to demonstrate how cool science really is - check out Mike Gil's marine biology research here: https://youtu.be/s1ICH0oe9H4.
