Summary

A citizen science project in collaboration with Syracuse University and University of Tubingen. Students learn about root fungi, and build spatial reasoning by evaluating microscopic images.

Project Activities, Goals

For this project we designed resources for sharing photos, and procedures for collecting comments and feedback from a geographically separated community of participants. Participants are contributing to active research by helping discover new organisms and assess tropical forest health.
