My name is Alex Byrne. I am the Field Scientist and Research Coordinator for the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance. Finally getting around to inaturalist and having a blast. My research currently includes, urban water quality, geochemistry of soils and biodiversity feedbacks, aquatic and terrestrial arthropod diversity, Oak loss and arthropods, science based restoration and finding ways to integrate biology into what would just be engineering. I have co-authored papers on frogs, odonates and water quality and am currently preparing manuscripts for describing ant diversity in van cortlandt park, soil elemental chemistry and Ground and Rove beetle community structure.
