Ventura County Association of Water Agencies Meeting

This week focused highly on editing the SAGE poster. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to attend the Ventura County Association of Water Agencies (AWA) annual meeting and brought the poster along for a trial run. Printing the poster, prior to the SAGE conference, allowed me to see what the poster actually looks like in person,… Read more »

SAGE Poster Draft

Much of this week was spent editing the poster that I will present at our end-of-year SAGE conference in May. The goal of this poster is to effectively summarize the research that I have conducted and present this information in a format that is easily accessible to the public. Additionally, I will be attending the… Read more »

Preliminary Poster

This week has been a very productive and helpful one. On Tuesday I met with Dr. Steele to discuss data analysis and results graphics. She was able to give me some guidance as far as formatting my graphics and suggested using different statistical tools to create more informative figures. In particular, she suggested using an… Read more »

Post Spring Break Update

I had lofty goals going in to the spring break NOLA trip, but feel accomplished that I was able to complete my thorough editing of my introduction. I have since sent it over to my mentor and am awaiting his feedback. This version of my introduction is much cleaner, succinct, and guided than the version… Read more »

Off to NOLA

This last week has been editing intensive. My goal is to have my introduction and methods complete by the end of spring break (3/15-3/26), but this may prove to be challenging as I will be departing for the NOLA service learning trip tomorrow. I have been re-writing much of my introduction based on suggestions from… Read more »

Editing…Editing…Editing

Last week consisted of loads of editing! I have been thoroughly reviewing and making changes to both my introduction, methods, and results sections. In doing so I have found much more useful research that has been conducted on bullfrog diet. I stumble across an excellent paper that had compiled all bullfrog diet analysis papers into… Read more »

Data Exploration

This week I was able to get some solid guidance from my mentor, Mike. I virtually met with Mike Wednesday morning and we talked through the rough draft of my results section and data exploration. He was able to give me some good suggestions as to what type of analysis I should pursue. Currently, my… Read more »

Ultimate Data Collection

This week I got the go-ahead to use the crayfish and millipede linear regressions to extrapolate crayfish and millipede volumes from the remains found in the frogs. This was very exciting news as I questioned the strength of the relationship between millipede head and butt width and millipede volume. Dr. Anderson reassured me that the… Read more »

Crayfish Linear Regression

My goal for this week was to collect enough crayfish to create a linear regression of claw length versus crayfish mass. I had planned to set traps out in the four spillway ponds Friday afternoon and check them both on Saturday and Sunday. At work on Thursday, I decided it would be a good idea… Read more »

Exotic Species Outnumber Natives (slightly)

This week has been another productive one. I am at somewhat of a standstill, as far as data collection goes, until I establish if there is a strong relationship between the crayfish claws and crayfish body mass. If I find that there is in fact a strong correlation, then I will have some more work… Read more »
