Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
I was co-leading a research project studying how different kinds of low-growing vegetation under powerlines might be able to suppress the establishment and growth of tree seedlings. If we could find an effective natural cover, it could reduce the need for herbicides or manual cutting to keep trees out of the powerlines. We established plots in many different locations, and in each plot planted seedlings of different tree species in a numbered grid. By mistake, in the one plot that I planted I started from the wrong corner so the numbering was all wrong. Fortunately, since we had good notes, we still could find all the seedlings for the 2+ years we studied the plot. However, this plot was called the "Berkowitz Plot" from then on, with everybody chuckling.
