Today was the last day of school visits with the BIOBus for our School Malaise Trap program.
Now we have 83 traps in 60 schools and a few adjacent National Parks and Conservation Areas. They are up and running since Monday and will hopefully fill up quickly. One more week and all those samples will come back. Then the big sorting, imaging, sub-sampling and sequencing will begin. All schools need their results back by early June.
Meet our Team! These folks have been on the school visits and will be working hard to barcode perhaps some 20 000 samples collected over two weeks.
