Dr. Margaret Lowmen Interview
EdTechLens:What is canopy research, and why have you been involved in it for more than 30 years?
Dr. Margaret Lowman: Canopy research is the study of treetops. It’s especially important to learn about life in the treetops because canopies are the interface between atmosphere and earth. Trees are homes for millions of creatures. More than half of all the land-dwelling organisms on our planet live in the canopies of trees.
