I will be shortly heading to the 2018 Plant Functional Trait Course in Cusco, Peru. Students in the course have been working on small assignments and reading some background literature to prepare for the 3-week field component. One such assignment has been to publish two blog posts (one pre- and one post-course). Check out the blog posts from all the attendees, here! I am very excited for the opportunity to attend the course and the chance to experience the natures and culture of Peru. Look for some pictures in the near future!
