Bald cypress restoration at Jean Lafitte National Park

Two undergrads in the lab, Henry Adams and Elizabeth Holland, did an independent project this semester in collaboration with Barataria Preserve at Jean Lafitte National Park. They analyzed historical planting and monitoring data to assess where on the landscape bald cypress restoration was most successful. They presented their results to park personnel to increase future planting success and developed a protocol for monitoring future plantings. They also participated in a field day where they helped plant more trees.
