Biogeographer: My favorite science experience is scouting large unexplored areas in search of evidence of past fires from old trees. It is like time traveling to find an old tree with many fire scars. It makes you think, “This tree was born way before Columbus arrived in America. This tree witnessed cultures from which humankind does not have written reports.” Through careful study, trees tell stories about people and how they interacted with their environment.
