Harvard College senior Frances C. O'Donnell completed her thesis Carbon Dynamics of a New England Temperate Forest Five Years After Selective Logging. The thesis quantifies how the carbon source-sink dynamics of the forest were modified due to harvesting activities based on field work conducted at the Harvard Forest. Frances' advisor is Professor Steven Wofsy of the Harvard University Department of Earth and Planetary Science. She participated in the 2006 Summer Research Program in Ecology for Undergraduates at the Harvard Forest. Next fall, Frances will begin a masters program at the University of Indiana.
