Master's Student, School of Natural Resources and the Environment, University of Arizona
Earyn McGee is a second year Master’s student in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Arizona. Her current research interests includes herpetology and community ecology. She has been sampling lizard and insect communities in the Chiricahua Mountains along perennial and ephemeral streams to quantify how the loss of aquatic prey (i.e. aquatic insects emerging from streams) during drought could negatively impact lizards in riparian areas. She is also interested in diversity and inclusion. At the University of Arizona, she is a graduate student mentor for the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program. Once finished with her Master’s, Earyn plans to expand on this project during a PhD program as well as continuing mentoring students.
