About the Authors

This website has been designed and created by Rachel Gold and Aysu Uygur, as a semester project for Field Biology class at Brandeis University, in fall 2006.

Both Rachel and Aysu are passionate about being out in nature, and during this project had the chance to do lots of field excursions, plant identifications and nature photography.
