Wetland Biologist

EnviroScience Botantist Elise Bartelme

A member of the EnviroScience team since 2017, Elise Bartelme performs wetland assessments and delineations, and the associated report preparation for submission to federal and state agencies.

Elise is trained and experienced in a wide variety of ecological and functional surveys including ORAM, VIBI, QHEI, HHEI, and Endangered Species habitat and coordination. She is also an experienced botanist—conducting rare plant surveys in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

While studying at John Carroll University, Elise received the Huntington-Codrington Foundation Summer Research Fellowship to investigate photosynthetic differences in native and invasive understory shrubs. She further pursued her passion at the University of Georgia, receiving her M.S. in plant biology. Her research focused on assessing drought resistance of the rare sunflower species, Helianthus porteri, an endemic to granite outcrops located in the Piedmont region of the Southeastern U.S. 

Elise also worked at the Cleveland Metroparks, where she supported key programs in several capacities: by identifying both woody and herbaceous plants across 400 plots, helping establish long-term monitoring for wetland plots, and assisting with herbicide applications.
