Summer fieldwork! (Alex)

This past summer (winter in Botswana), Alex conducted field research for his master’s thesis in the region between the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. This research combines biomass and structural field measurements with remote sensing methodology to employ spatiotemporal ecosystem dynamics in conservation planning.
