Fieldwork July 2015

As a sum-up and final ‘official’ field trip to Edgbaston Sasha and I scooted on over after teaching at Idalia National Park (near Blackall).

On this trip we were working on experimentally testing the tolerance of the snails from Edgbaston to a range of environmental stressors.  Some of these species were already tested in summer so a second check up on whether they change over the cooler less harsh winter was also an interesting pursuit.

I miss Edgbaston every minute I am away so a chance to frolic around for a week and revisit places I miss as well as explore new edges of the reserve make me ever grateful for the chance to work on such an amazing piece of country.
