When she set out to study some of the smallest creatures in the Rush Valley desert in Northwestern Utah, Amy Clark (BS, BYU) began by looking at the big picture – the really big picture. Aerial drone photos, to be exact, which showed her study site bespeckled with circular spaces denuded of vegetation, each one dotted at the center with a tiny earthen mound. They weren’t miniature crop circles. They were the homes of seed harvester ants. A new fact sheet about her research is now available.
