Light, Cameras, Actions: using color, imagery, and observational phenology data in arid lands

Alesia Hallmark is a Ph.D. student in the labs of Drs. Scott Collins and Marcy Litvak at the University of New Mexico. Alesia is fascinated by the phenology and life histories of arid land species, which have evolved to survive in hot, dry, and unpredictable conditions. Using eddy covariance, remote sensing, long-term ecological data, and phenocams, Alesia studies how arid-land species, communities, and ecosystems survive and reproduce in these challenging conditions.
