I have learned so much about the specific research scientists are conducting with the specimens I prep. Additionally, I have learned the importance of having collections, and why they are necessary. Types of research that is being conducted with the specimens are in the fields in: systematics, biogeography, ecology, morphology, and many other fields in biology, such as genetics.
I have also learned a lot about ecology after working with Amber Roman. I have learned about the different types of ecology and the different job opportunities in the field. We got to look at some projects in ecology that are going on.
Furthermore, I still wish I knew more about putting together the videos and editing.
