Things have been going well in the Great Basin. We have wrapped up all our fire monitoring field work and we are on to the data entry and IDing the unknown plants. It will be really nice to get back out in the field and enjoy the last days of summer before autumn rolls around. We also have been working on the methodology for a rare butterfly survey and have been out to Sand Mountain (SE of Fallon, NV) to establish the transects. Soon enough we will be on to seed collecting, seed collecting, and more seed collecting.
