Lab Life

  • What looks like a contraption from a SciFi movie is a Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer - short ToF SIMS. Our collaborator Reinhard Jetter in Vancouver has one, and Michal got to play with it during his visit at the end of 2019 (photo by Michal Golos).

Field Work

  • Measuring the viscoelastic properties of the pitcher trap fluid with a portable rheometer in our field site in Brunei Darussalam.

Botanical Expeditions

  • Photographing pitcher plants in central Mindanao, Philippines (photo by William Hoyer).

Other Activities

  • Maybe the greatest honour in Ulrike's scientific career so far was getting to meet one of the pioneers of carnivorous plant research, Barry Juniper, in July 2019 (photo by Alanna Kelly).
