I don't have pictures from field work yet... but here are some soils we collected. We're analyzing soil chemistry here, including pH and nutrient contents.
Jess is washing our glassware for more analyses.
Ashley is counting nematodes in the soil.
Ruth is measuring soil pH and electrical conductivity.
