Adventures during Field experiments

At EMOS Research Group, our scientific journey is a blend of field exploration, laboratory experiments, and computational analysis. But amidst these methodologies, one aspect stands out as the most captivating: our adventures in the field.

A few months ago, we teamed up with Professor Ana Savić, an environmental biologist from the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Nis, and expanded our collaboration to include Malden, Jelena Kalajdzic, and Dragoslav Ivanisevic from the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Novi Sad. Together, our mission was to investigate the impact of biostimulators found in commercial products on various ecosystems.

We meticulously selected several crucial locations for sampling, and our experiences were nothing short of thrilling. However, every adventure has its challenges, and for us, it was the relentless mosquitoes. But armed with determination and good spirits, we faced these buzzing adversaries head-on.

What truly made our fieldwork memorable was the shared enthusiasm and camaraderie among our team. We not only embraced the scientific task at hand but also had a bit of fun with our choice of outfits, donning gear that would make even the most intrepid explorers proud.

Amidst the laughter and mosquito battles, our dedication to scientific inquiry remained unwavering. Our days were filled with the wonders of nature, the thrill of discovery, and the collection of valuable samples that would fuel our research endeavors.

As we return from the field, our hearts are filled with excitement for the next phase of our research. Back in the laboratory, we’ll conduct experiments and analyze the data collected during our expedition. But it’s the memories of our fieldwork—the shared experiences and the joy of discovery—that truly resonate with us.
