Lisa M. Weimer

Lisa received her M.S. in Biology from George Mason University (thesis, 1998). She has been working at the USGS since 1996, on the Terrestrial Ecosystems Project for south Florida, documenting the changes in the vegetational record pre- and post-human intervention in the region. Lisa also has examined the pollen record in cores from the Chesapeake Bay and is beginning to interpret the diatoms preserved in these sediments.
