Flashback to Summer 2016, gut passage experiment

Here are three of our biologists (Kloe Borja- Kagman High School, Amanda Santos - Oregon State University, and Joma Santos - University of Guam) from this summer working on sorting seeds from our gut passage experiments with captive forest birds. We fed seeds of over 20 tree species to captive Mariana fruit doves, white-throated ground doves, Micronesian starlings, bridled white-eyes, and golden white-eyes to see how gut passage affects germination.
