Jess Gersony, a graduate student in the Holbrook lab of Harvard's Organismic & Evolutionary Biology (OEB) department, discussed her Harvard Forest-based research in a new episode of 'Science in Real Life' on YouTube this month. Fellow OEB graduate student Molly Edwards launched the YouTube channel with a grant from the American Society of Plant Biologists, with a goal of producing 10 episodes featuring the work of women plant biologists at leading research institutions across the country.

The episode features Gersony on a trip to the treetops via the Forest's bucket lift (affectionately nicknamed 'Bucky') and demonstrating the pressure bomb, an instrument that measures dryness in trees.
