Yesterday, Janelle G. and Shelby F. helped me do the May census on the Hegg Lake plot of my local adaptation experiment. There were some surprises, including 3 or 4 NEW seedlings!

Another surprise was a visit from this fawn.

Another interesting discovery was a cluster of egg sacs. Anybody know what critter would leave these?

Today and tomorrow we plan to census the two South Dakota plots that are part of this experiment.

Cool. Those are the first documented seedlings from a seedbank. I wonder if they are local origin.
