Ohio History Connection Intern Presents Research at Denison University
Here at the Ohio History Connection, Archaeology and Natural History are one department. Because we work so closely, opportunities occasionally pop up for interns to branch out of their field of study and assist on other projects. Meg Schiska has been doing just that for the past five months. She has been prepping the remains of the most complete mammoth ever known to be found in Ohio for research and exhibit in Natural History as well as identifying faunal remains from archaeological contexts in Archaeology.
On December 13th, Meg presented a poster as part of her senior research in Denison University’s Environmental Studies Program. She explored the impact of climate change on at-risk local species such as the scarlet tanager (Piranga olivacea) and the Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis). As you know, the most important aspect of scholarly work is to share that research with the greater scientific community. Great job Meg!
