Ezra Schwartzberg helped with design, implementation, and management of the biological research infrastructure at intervale Lowlands Preserve in Lake Placid, Ny. We needed someone with broad expertise to advise on a long-term project with detailed scientific objectives as well as with many open-ended questions relating to climate change monitoring and management or private lands.
