Kira Hoffman spends most of her time in the blanket bogs situated on Calvert Island in the Great Bear Rainforest. There she studies how soils and plants interact and what drives ecosystem processes in these nutrient poor systems. She is currently conducting microcosm experiments to understand how increased drainage affects plant productivity. Although new to the coast, she is learning to love epic downpours and how to drive a boat.
