Senior Environmental Science major Diamonique Clark is taking advantage of every opportunity college has to offer. This past summer she participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico.  While in Puerto Rico, Diamonique examined the size class distribution of pterocarpus, a naturally found wetland tree. This ten week research experience will be used for future management plans for the pterocarpus and other similar wetland plants. Also in this experience, Diamonique got to volunteer with the U.S. Forest Service surveying all trees in specific plots for their diameter at breast height (DBH). Her contribution to this project will help provide important data for ecological management decisions.
