About Christina Mitchell

I research how forest ecology is affected by increasing levels of urbanization and how that may change across a latitudinal gradient.

What makes a forest?

As a Masters’ student in the Frank lab, I study relatively small organisms called ground beetles. Ground beetles are used to monitor forest health because they are common, vary in food and habitat requirements, and are sensitive to human-caused disturbances.
