Mt. Tamalpais
    This site on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County is a P. menziesii and Lithocarpus densiflorus mixed forest. The work I've done here was in collaboration with a fellow graduate student Peter Kennedy and became the first phase of his dissertation work on L. densiflorus establishment relative to the forest-meadow boundary.
