Seed Release

Caption: At a conservation corridor experiment in South Carolina, University of Wisconsin-Madison postdoctoral researcher Dirk Baker releases artificial seeds that glow in the dark. By retrieving the seeds at night with a black light, Ellen Damschen and colleagues measured and modeled how wind moves seeds through habitats with different shapes and connections. Damschen is an assistant professor of zoology at UW-Madison.
