Peter Leipzig-Scott

I was born and raised in New York, where I received my degree in Environmental Studies from Skidmore College. My research there covered a wide range of issues, but much of it examined the spread of riparian invasive plant species. After graduation, I worked for the BLM and the Nature Conservancy in Tucson, followed by wildlife conservation work in Costa Rica. Most recently I have spent the last year and a half working with the USGS here in Fort Collins, studying contaminant loads in macroinvertebrates and spiders. I'll be switching gears this Fall, joining Ruth Hufbauer's lab and�???�??�?� turning my research focus back�???�??�?� to plant ecology.
