Description of project/event:

Lab sections tour the BFS on 9/21 and 9/22. Then, 15 student pairs independently visit during the daytime for about 1 hour on any day before 10/9, finding a spot of interest, and sitting and observing while noting their ecological observations and taking pictures. At least two weeks later, the 15 student pairs return to independently visit during the daytime for about 1 hour on any day before 10/30, finding a new or returning to the previous spot, to conduct similar observations and brainstorm research questions and hypotheses. Following this, student pairs will meet with the instructor then design an experiment based on their observations; the experiment is theoretical and will not be performed. Instructor will hold office hours at the RRC sporadically between 9/27 and 10/30, with students encouraged to conduct observations during those times, but they can choose to visit outside these times.

Description of project/event:

Our 2nd-year ecology field course (required for all biology majors) at Cal-State Fullerton has a module on animal behavior. Students learn basic behavioral methods at the CSUF Arboretum and then apply this knowledge to design and conduct their own short behavioral studies. In the past we have done this work at the Desert Studies Center in Zzyzx but that site is currently unavailable. We expect that students will do many of the same types of projects that they have done in the desert. These include: -estimates of giving-up densities of kangaroo rats in shrub and open microhabitats using artificial seed trays and remote cameras - monitoring behavior of diurnal mammals using remote cameras - diet of predators based on prey remains in scats - counts of bird activity and diversity in different habitats - observations of bird foraging activity over time - counts of lizard activity over time and different temperatures - observations of lizard behavior on different substrates - foraging activity of ants on mounds in response to different food types - insect visitation of flowers Students will work in groups of 3-4. Each group will visit BFS for approximately 6 hours, with the amount of time varying depending on the nature of the project. All activities will be supervised by course instructors (TAs) and/or Dr. Stapp. We will arrange for students to arrive at set times to coordinate entry into the field station and orientation to the site. Our aim is to stagger their work times at the BFS so that no more than 32 students are at the site at a time. Students will be introduced to CSS/chaparral ecosystems in a lab period prior to field work and will be informed of rules and policies for using the field station.

Description of project/event:

Detection of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the environment. We are working with the Prevalence of Antibiotic Resistance in the Environment project (PARE; https://sites.tufts.edu/ctse/pare/), as part of a nationwide effort to monitor the spread of tetracycline resistant bacteria. Students will collect small samples of soil (~250 mg) from a variety of locations, purify microbial DNA from the samples, and use PCR to determine if either of two common tetracycline resistance genes can be found. We'll send our findings back to PARE, who will maintain an interactive map of where resistance genes have been found across the country. We thought this would be an excellent way to introduce the BFS to our Bio43 students by making the field station one of the sites they can potentially sample from. In one week of lab, we would take the students on a brief tour of the field station. Then sometime over the next week, students could return in pairs or small groups to collect their samples. If students should not be visiting on their own, we can coordinate for instructors to chaperone them during the return visits.

Will any plants or animals be collected? The seeds of various plants may be collected, specifically via soil cores and seed rain collectors. A few soil cores and collectors would be set up at each site (I'm thinking approximately 5-7 sites). I'm not sure the exact size of the soil core, but it would be fairly small.
Will any vertebrate animals be collected or manipulated? NO
Will flags or markings be used? Markings would include colored flags or PVC pipes and a metal tag with number ID.

Description of project/event:
The purpose of my research would be to investigate how consumer pressure (granivory) and propagule pressure (seed bank and seed rain) affect native plant recruitment and overall community structure within California's coastal sage scrub community (CSS). I'd also look into how different microhabitats (such as grasslands, shrublands, degraded areas) within the CSS affect both consumer and propagule pressure. I'd do this by taking soil cores and setting up seed rain collectors in order to assess propagule pressure of both native and invasive species in the different microhabitats. For consumer pressure, I'd set up petri dishes full of native seeds alongside wildlife cameras in order to see what groups (birds, mammals, etc.) are consuming native seeds; I'd also set these up in different microhabitats to see if there is a difference in consumer pressure between microhabitats. I think that my research could benefit future restoration practices as native seeding is a common tool used in restoration. Seeding success if affected by variety of factors, such as consumer and propagule pressure. Finding out specifically how these two factors can affect native recruitment and overall community composition can help improve the efficacy of restoration efforts.

Plant or animal species to be studied: Target species: white-crowned sparrows (Zonotrichia leucophrys), California towhees (Melozone crissalis)
Will any plants or animals be collected? A maximum of 50uL of blood will be taken from the brachial wing vein of white-crowned sparrows and California towhees. This sample will be used for 3 purposes: about 5uL will be put onto filter paper and used for genetic determination of sex, 5uL will be put onto a glass slide and used for parasite analysis, and the remaining blood will be used for additional parasite analyses after plasma is separated from red blood cells in a centrifuge.
Will any vertebrate animals be collected or manipulated? YES
Will flags or markings be used? I will use labeled pink flagging tape attached to a fence stake to mark traps and camera locations.

Description of project/event:
Our goals are to quantify how white-crowned sparrows use the BFS (as a wintering site versus a stop along their migratory route), study winter social behavior, examine population-level patterns related to migration across multiple study years and address several questions about parasites in migratory birds. We will trap birds in Oct-Nov and Feb-March for about 24 cumulative hours during fall and spring. Traps will be baited with “no mess” seed that has been heated to prevent germination. Birds will be held temporarily in cotton bags before processing, which will involve attaching a metal USGS-issued numbered band to each bird and taking standard body measurements. Because the white-crowned sparrow is our focal species, we will also attach plastic, colored leg bands to allow for individual identification in the field. We will set up automated cameras around the BFS to determine where individual white-crowned sparrows forage and whether they form stable flocks. Parasite load will be determined from blood and feces. Resident California towhees will serve as a parasite comparison to migratory white-crowned sparrows. As such we will take blood from birds of both species from the brachial wing vein. We will also examine the birds for ecto-parasites and collect “volunteered” fecal samples (left in the bird holding bags) to check for gastro-intestinal parasites. For all species other than white-crowned sparrows and California towhees, we are using trapping as a method to understand their demographics at the BFS and to contribute to ongoing data collection by Nina Karnoskvy (Pomona College).

Description of project/event:
The effects of urbanization on invasion success of non-native lizards. Several non-native lizard species have been introduced to Southern California, including anoles, geckos, whiptail lizards, and Italian wall lizards. Although many of these species are common invasives in other parts of the world, we have little to no data on their ecologies within Southern California. We lack basic information on how they use the habitat, and how they interact with other species (including predators, prey, competitors, and parasites). Notably, the non-native Italian Wall Lizards in California have been introduced in urban habitats (e.g. residential neighborhoods) and have displaced native lizards in the process of their range expansion. Wall lizards seem to be doing better in these areas than the natives, even though the natives have been here for longer and have an evolutionary history with the region. This study would address whether urbanization makes the invasion process easier for non-native lizards because it affects that ways that native lizards can respond to invaders. For instance, urbanization can lead to lower body conditions and poorer health in native lizards, making it harder for them to defend territories against non-native intruders. To address this question, we will capture native Western Fence Lizards from two different habitats--natural and urban--and compare each population's responses to intruding Italian Wall Lizards in semi-natural enclosures in my lab at CSUSB. We will also measure the physiological stress response of fence lizards from natural habitats and urban habitats to invading wall lizards. We predict that urban fence lizards will have poorer responses to wall lizards as they are already dealing with the challenges of urban-life. Information produced from this research could be crucial for conservation efforts in the region.

I am examining the efficacy of using various methods of marking snakes to estimate population density and track movements at the Bernard Field Station, and elsewhere. To do this, I will be using both pattern recognition software and branding, which is a common way to mark individual snakes. This will allow me to assess if pattern recognition can be used as a non-invasive way to use to identify individual snakes to estimate population densities as little is known about the efficacy of this method for snakes. Population data could allow us to see how species are distributed across the different habitats at the field station and possibly give some insight to how disturbances like fragmentation and fire impact these populations. I will be using various types of ground cover (plywood, landscaping fabric) to attract snakes as well as performing visual transects. When a snake is found, it will be caught with a snake hook, photographed, put in a snake tube (clear plastic tube that prevents the snake from turning around, commonly used during snake marking or veterinary procedures) so I cannot be bitten, and then branded using a medical cautery unit before being released. All of this can be done on site so there will be no need to remove the animal from where it was found, and branding has not been shown to be invasive or a threat to the snakes fitness, and does not increase visibility to predators.

Description of project/event:
As an isolated patch of coastal sage scrub, Bernard Field Station is home to a diverse community of small mammals that have the potential to share parasites. We will collect fecal samples from small mammal live-traps to determine the composition of the parasites in their guts. These gut parasites release eggs into the environment with the host feces, where they can then infect the same or potentially other host species. We will use fecal egg counts and microscopy to test for prevalence (% infection), intensity (how many parasites) and parasite sharing (visually identical parasite eggs), among host species. We will also use deworming medication to experimentally test for interactions among different kinds of parasites.

Description of project/event:
Honey bees and native bees such as bumble bees are important pollinators in both natural and agricultural ecosystems. However, bees of both kinds are disappearing, and one of the key factors implicated in their decline is changes in land use which limit both the quantity and diversity of floral resources available to them. Traditional methods for assessing where flowers are tend to be either too labor-intensive to carry out on a large scale (ground-based surveys) or lack sufficient detail to discern individual flowering plants (satellite imaging). We are using high-resolution drone-based imaging methods, which provide greater detail than satellite images but scale up more easily than ground-based surveys. In this project, we will continue developing and testing an existing method using computer vision and machine learning to create high-resolution maps of patches of flowers at a scale relevant to foraging bees. We plan to test and improve the code to work for multiple species of flowering plants, using new data collected at the field station and coordinating with another summer research project on honey bee foraging. To do this, we plan to make a series of drone flights every other week, covering as much of the open-vegetation portions of the field station as possible. Flights will be done in the mornings and may occur 3-4 days a week in the "on" weeks. Individual plants will be marked with wooden stakes for reference in the overhead images.

Description of project/event:
Air pollution, especially particulate matters, has harmful effects on human health and ecosystem. In order to assess the impacts of traffic on the PM10 concentration in the BFS, daily PM10 samples are collected simultaneously on the road side and central part of the BFS. By analyzing the chemical composition of PM10 and comparing samples on the roadside and the central part of BFS, we assess the impacts of traffic on the PM10 pollution in the BFS. we are also planning to collected soils and leaves in the two sampling locations to assess the impacts of traffic pollution on heavy metals concentration in the BFS.

Through this initiative the Pres Chodosh implemented, I am an Anti-Racism Faculty Fellow. My project is working with Native-led environmental nonprofits. My hope is to connect 5C students with opportunities to intern at these groups. And I would also like to lead some retreats. I think the Bernard Field Station would make a great meeting and jumping off point. We would use it for guided discussion and nature walks. I want to go walk through the site to prepare for my courses.
