ELS 502 sampling Saguaro spinesELS 502 Field TripsDefault Banner: Ocean Trip

On March 3, 2013, ELS 502 field class sampled the spines of a Saguaro for stable isotope analysis.

Snapshots of ELS 502 field class trips: students preparing leaves for a herbivory experiment along the San Pedro River, students visiting Santa Rita Experimental Station, and students investigating the Pacific intertidal at Cabrillo National Park (San Diego, CA).
