Marie Lorenz

(Master's student)

I have just finished my Bachelor's degree in Landscape Management and Nature Conservation at the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development in Germany. Botany and wildlife is a passion of mine, that is why I'm pleased to explore the arctic nature and learn about this unique ecosystem. During my internship at CIRC (Nuolja Plant Phenology Project), my aim have been to learn more about the adaptation of alpine plant species to the Arctic environment. Moreover, this internship has also been an great opportunity to be part of the citizen science project, contributing to give a broad audience an understanding of climate change.
