Charlotte Steelman




I am a sophomore biology major at Davidson College, and I started working in the Herpetology lab last fall. I am involved in running the drift fence on the Davidson Ecological Preserve as well as helping out with other student projects. This semester, I am starting my own project to examine the effects of environmental variation and anthropogenic noise, specifically airplane traffic, on anuran calling activity and calling parameters. I will be using automated recording systems, manual calling surveys, weather data loggers, and data from the Davidson College Weather Station for this study.
