In the summer of 2014, four graduate students from the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University—Sahil Chaini, Zhenzhen Chen, Casey Johnson, and Jianyu Wu—worked as E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation interns, as part of the ATBI/BioBlitz SWAT Team and Group Masters Project. Their internship was supported though a partnership with Discover Life in America, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Turner Endangered Species Fund. They identified gaps in the current species database at Rocky Mountain National Park, ultimately designing a spider survey in the park. “Caught in the Web” documents their summer experience and relates a story that inspires action to preserve biodiversity in our national parks and vital natural spaces.
