Bowsher High science teacher Michelle Reed, who is currently pursuing graduate credit through Miami University's Project Dragonfly Earth Expeditions, will travel to Costa Rica this summer to study lowland rain forest and montane cloud forests.

She will be doing that while investigating the biotic, physical and cultural forces that affect tropical diversity.
