SUMMER of 2002
The summer of 2002 was filled with field work to collect data about soil, vegetation, and soil organisms. The area of study was focused around a 150 meter radius of the Cub Hill tower. In this area data was collected from two forested plots and more than 50 residential yards. During the summer over 700 soil samples were collected, worm and arthropod sampling was conducted, and identification of tress and shrub was conducted in the forest plots and in the residential yards. The sampling was done during the months of June, July, and August by a field crew of seven interns.
