Deep in the tropical rainforest of Panama, two students work together to set up a field experiment in one of the driest wet seasons in over 100 years. Samantha Siomko ’17 and Sara Vasquez, an alumna from the University of Panama, do not speak the same language, so they use a lot of gestures on top of written or spoken words to create the detailed setup needed for data collection.
Siomko and Vasquez are the first students to participate in a pilot binational internship that is being developed by behavioral ecologist and Biology Prof. Paula “Alex” Trillo.
