Case Study | April 2022

During the second year of their project, a team based at the Wells Research Reserve suffered the tragic loss of the lead science investigator. This individual had served as the Reserve's research coordinator for many years and possessed a deep reservoir of scientific knowledge about the local ecosystems on which the project was focused. In addition to the intense emotional impact, the loss of a respected researcher and team member posed a significant challenge to the project.
