Notes from the field: Argentina
Paleoecology Lab Director, Dr. Cathy Whitlock and Ph.D student Buzz Nanavati hit the skies this last week for the southern hemisphere. They are traveling to San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina for a conference titled "Modeling past and present vegetation dynamics in Patagonia forest-steppe". Those gathered are from the fields of ecosystem modeling, paleoecology, and archaeology. Buzz has shared some beautiful photos of the area.
