treeDuring Amy Bennett’s internship at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in 2014, she was involved in research on whether or not bigger trees suffer worse during droughts.

Research from Amy’s internship was recently published in the journal Nature Plants where she was referenced. The research found that bigger trees suffer the most during droughts, regardless of location or forest type.
