Field Work in Eastern Washington

It is mosquito season! Clement (another postdoctoral researcher in the lab) and I went to Eastern Washington to collect mosquitoes and orchid scents!

Platanthera obtusata, or how to look for a needle in a haystack.

Checking on the mosquitoes we collected. These guys are pretty sensitive to heat and desiccation so we transport them in a cooler containing ice packs.

Now, back in the lab, it is time for some plant scent analyses and experiments with the mosquitoes!
