I have spent most of my university life in the lab since I did my undergrad in the Biochemistry program. However, this summer I got to experience my first field season doing my own project which was FANTASTIC! But, keeping in mind that this was my first season you can be sure that I had my fair share of hilarious mistakes and adventures. One of my favourite moments this summer was when I had to bring my quadrat (BIG metal square) through this old dead forest so that I could put it down and count plants in random spots. Let's just say that metal squares are not meant for thick forests. I got caught on almost every single branch, shrub, dead tree and stinging nettle plant (OUCH!). It was pretty funny to see other people watching and wondering what in the world we were doing.
