TESTIMONIALS

"I started working with Anjanette in September of 2017. The thing that impressed me initially was Anjanette’s unbridled concern for the environment, especially forest ecosystems. After several years of collaboration, I have found that Anjanette’s field research has produced high-quality data that have resulted in several joint peer-reviewed publications. Not only is Anjanette a good colleague philosophically but she is also well respected scientifically."
