Captions provided by CCTubes – Captioning the Internet! Dr. Meg Lowman climbs hundreds of feet off the ground to reach ecosystems at the very top of the rainforest. Her research sheds new light on these extremely diverse communities of plants and animals, from sloths to butterflies to tiny tardigrades.

Experience intense, unique, and sometimes dangerous moments with scientists working in the field, as they explain first-hand the kinds of risks they take to find answers. There’s so much more to being a scientist than being stuck in a lab. Watch every Wednesday for new episodes of Science in the Extremes.
