A Field Trip to Chile

One of my advisors, Dr. Bernard Goffinet, arrived back in Connecticut from a field trip to southern Chile to study mosses and lichens. Another scientict on the expedition, Dr. Bill Buck, a researcher at the New York Botanical Garden, wrote several blog posts about this trip. They are posted at The New York Botanical Garden's blog Plant Talk.

The posts are a travel log that covers the challenges of field work in the midst of the protests in Punta Arenas, Chile. Fortunately everyone made it back to the states safely.

Thanks Juan Carlos for the link! 

Update 27 Jan 2011: Several of the researchers including Dr. Bill Buck are still in Chile doing fieldwork. He will be sending more blog posts from the field in the upcoming days.
