Sewanee students conduct research in Haiti

This summer, five Sewanee students and a St. Andrews-Sewanee student worked closely with Haitian counterparts on a long-term ecosystem services research project in Haiti's central plateau region. This project was started in 2006 and it is part of a larger Sewanee-Haiti collaboration which is managed by Dixon Myers, Pradip Malde and Deborah McGrath. This photo was taken in May 2016 in Morne Michel, of the Central Plateau region (900 masl). From left to right, project personnel include: Chris Hornsby (Environment and Sustainability '19), Scott Summers (Ecology and Biodiversity '16), Dr. Deborah McGrath, Bosquet Wupuy (Zanmi Agrikol), Peter Davis (Natural Resources '17), Duncan Pearce (Biology '17), Ben McKenzie (Ecology and Biodiversity '17), Jean Emmanuel (School Master Morne Michel), Ephesien Noel (Zanmi Kafe) and Jean Francique (Zanmi Kafe), and Sam Smith (SAS '17).
