A peaceful walk in the woods. Made some small friends in the leaf litter. #entomology #scarabidae #millipede #njparks #stateparks #newjersey #bugslife🐞 #insecta #awalkinthepark #hiking #nature #naturephotography

My first #broodx2021 Cicada! If you live in the eastern US, keep your eyes peeled for the next few weeks for these awesome insects- we won’t see them again until 2038!

So proud of my research students, Alissa and Nikki, for doing their first professional research presentations this week at the annual ICFNJ Research Symposium...
.
I’m also very excited that Nikki was awarded an honorable mention and placed for her presentation. So excited for my students and happy to be able to celebrate all of their hard work!

Wood frogs calling in a pond (may be a vernal pool) in northwestern NJ. 🐸 Wood frog males will call out in hopes of attracting a mate after they thaw out when temperatures begin to stay above freezing. Signs of spring are finally arriving! #spring #frogs #woodfrogs #nature #frogcalls #hiking #pond #optoutside

Check out some of our #endospore stains from lab this week! Students stained these using the Schaeffer-Fulton method....essentially this forces the malachite green stain into the endospore (a SUPER durable structure, kind of like a microbial life raft for the cell) using steam from a hot water bath and then counter stains using reddish-pink safranin.... . . #microbiology #microbiologist #microscopy #bacillus #sporestain #biology #handsonlearning #learningbydoing #centscience @cent.science @centenaryuniversity

Bacillus megaterium, visualized using 5% nigrosin negative stain, by one of my microbiology students in lab today!...
.
Several of my students did an excellent job with their stains today and all were able to clearly visualize the structure and form of these bacteria....

Some mixed culture quad streaks of gorgeous deep red Serratia marcescens and pearly white Micrococcus luteus from Microbio lab looking super festive for Valentine’s day...
.
.

When grown together in mixed culture, they look like a pretty light pink color that makes for a very festive nutrient agar plate!

Went out for a gorgeous autumn walk to collect some samples for my upcoming “unknown” plant DNA lab in my genetics course @cent.science and stumbled across these cuties. Not sure, but I think these are some type of bonnet mushroom (genus- Mycena)....

Always so many beautiful things to see around this time of year, even when you least expect it!...

I’ve enjoyed sharing my findings from my dissertation work looking at mosquito microbiomes in Rwanda with @universityofrwanda Center of Excellence in Biodiviersity and with @gorilladoctors this morning! Very grateful for the opportunity to share my findings and looking forward to continued and expanded partnerships! 🦟🦍... . . #rwanda #mosquito #gorilla #ecology #microbiology #microbiome #diseaseecology #coeb #universityofrwanda #gorilladoctors #science

Taking some outdoor time and trying to get prepared for next week. Found this friend peeking in the grass to remind me to take some time and look a little closer this weekend.... . . #pickerelfrog #anuran #frog #hopping #weekend #weekendvibes #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #amphibiansofinstagram #amphibian #hackettstownnj
