2017: Research at Pennsylvania Mountain published in Science magazine!
We are buzzing with excitement here! Research conducted in part at Pennsylvania Mountain Natural Area is now in Science magazine! MALT Ambassador Dr. Candace Galen and her fellow scientists have published their research article “Flight of the bumble bee: Buzzes predict pollination services” on June 7, 2017. Dr. Galen, a professor at the University of Missouri Division of Biological Sciences, has been involved in research at Penn Mountain for several decades. Each year, she selects two research interns who along with conducting scientific research at Penn Mountain also lead MALT guided hikes and discuss their work. Both Izze Hedrick (Elizabeth) and Zoe Moffett who are cited in this article for their research contributions were MALT Pennsylvania Mountain research interns. Maybe you met them on one of our hikes?
Congratulations Dr. Galen!
