Amber Ross

Dimensions of Biodiversity High School Fellow

Amber Ross worked in the Arnold lab as a researcher during her junior and senior years at Tucson Magnet High School. Through her Dimensions of Biodiversity High School Fellowship she assessed the roles of endohyphal bacteria in shaping functional traits such as cellulase, xylanase, and ligninase activity. She presented her work in regional science fairs and participated in our local sampling of endophyte biodiversity.
