“Whatcha doing there, Radha?” by Vincent Irizarry


While out in the field at Blackwater, we were looking for herbivory amongst our plots which consisted of non-vegetated and vegetated plots. These silver metal pieces were actually turned into homemade animal track plates using ethanol, mineral oil, and graphite powder. Radha, Taylor, Keryn, and I mixed the ethanol, oil, and graphite powder to create homemade ink. The ink was later spread across the tract plates and, these were later used in the field to see if animal activity was present.
