Myrtho Pierre is the new biological scientist in the lab. She is already taking charge of many of our specialized measurements. Myrtho worked for years in horticultural production and consulting in Haiti, and she has been working “behind the scenes” here at CREC for 4 years (3.5 years longer than I have!). She brings organization and friendliness to the lab, and she is already knee deep in greenhouse management and calibration of chlorophyll fluorescence and root respiration measurement. I look forward to good things to come.
