Members of Hamilton's ecology class, Biology 237, made the annual trek to Whiteface Mountain to study responses of the vegetation to environmental conditions on Sept. 26. The high Adirondacks were at peak color, so the trip was a great success aesthetically as well as scientifically. Ernest Williams, the Christian A. Johnson Excellence in Teaching Professor of Biology, and Associate Professor of Biology Bill Pfitsch accompanied the students.

The class characterized and measured the forest at a series of elevations along the Whiteface highway and then hiked through the alpine and subalpine zone near the summit to look closely at the alpine vegetation and dwarfed trees.
