Fieldnotes

Fieldnotes is a monthly video blog hosted by Ben Stegenga, Research Assistant for our Longleaf Savannas projects.  This video blog is designed to give viewers an inside look into the fieldwork components of our various conservation and research projects being conducted in the southeastern Coastal Plain.  In addition to describing research and survey techniques, many of the episodes highlight species that Ben encounters in the field and delves into their unique ecology and role in the Longleaf Pine Ecosystem.
