Throughout the year, students and faculty break away from work to take field excursions together. In the fall incoming graduate students have the opportunity to meet the colleagues they will work with at UC Davis on an orientation trip. California offers considerable diversity and we attempt to explore some of it on these trips. In addition to exploration we have the opportunity to discuss design of field-based experiments in the field.
