Program to follow: “Vernal Pools for Me – an outreach project” by Dr. Kristine Hoffmann
|Dr. Hoffmann grew up with a vernal pool in her backyard in Massachusetts. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, and headed south to study invasive tree frogs for her Master’s degree at the University of Florida. She then taught biology at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise before returning to school to earn her doctorate at the University of Maine.
Kris just defended her dissertation on Unisexual and Blue-Spotted Salamander ecology this January, and conducted some of this research on lands managed by the Orono Land Trust. Kris is now a Postdoctoral Researcher and continues to work on amphibian ecology.
