I am currently accepting volunteers interested in outside field work, laboratory assistants or the combination of both.
Field volunteer duties will include*:
- soil core collection
- litter depth measurement
- microarthropod extraction/ preparation and collection.
Laboratory volunteer duties will include :
- microarthropod sorting/identification
- data management
- soil pH anaylsis
- soil organic matter analysis
- soil moisture analysis
- soil C:N analysis
- DNA extraction for amplicon sequencing
*Note field duties will require traveling to multiple forested areas in central Indiana.
