Two teams of students in Professor Roger Laushman’s class use a nearby preserve for research.

Students in Professor Roger Laushman’s Plant Ecology course use Chance Creek Preserve in nearby Lorain MetroParks as their field site. In this course, students work on projects in teams and on this particular day, Laushman worked with two teams: One is taking increment cores from tulip poplar trees in order to compare pattern growths, while the other team completes a survey of ferns in the preserve.
