Discovery NotesThis environmental sample was collected outside of the University Pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh. There was no mulch above the soil so I collected the soil right below the top layer of soil. It did not look like there was other material such as fertilizer in it. The outside conditions at the time it was collected were 25 degrees Fahrenheit and somewhat cold. It had rained earlier that day. It was collected on Monday January 30th, 2017. The coordinates were 40 degrees 26'38" N 79 degrees 57'19" W. It was collected at 930 ft. elevation.
Naming NotesMy cat's name is Kokomo who we named after the Beach Boys' song "Kokomo."
