This electronic field guide is the result of a semester-long field biology course at Brandeis University. This project would not have been possible without the help of our dedicated professor, Dan Perlman and our hardworking TA, Caitlin Fisher-Reid. Their constant support helped us traverse both the forests of New England and the World Wide Web!
