Dr. Alexander works with graduate students
Undergraduate and graduate training is ongoing in the program. Here Dr. Alexander  and project graduate student Risa Pesapane provide training to students  on water collection approaches.

Water samples are collected twice a month through the length of the Chobe River. Samples are processed and evaluated at Dr. Alexander's field laboratory near the Chobe National Park  at the  CARACAL Biodiversity Center.

Collection of samples is challenging due to water height requiring different types of boats. Hippos, crocodiles and elephants keep the work exciting!!!
