Current student and two alumni present research findings at the 2010 meeting of the Ecological Society of America, Pt. 1
One current student and two alumni presented their research findings at the 2010 meeting of the Ecological Society of America, held August 1-6 in Pittsburgh, PA.
Rachel Day (AU'11, Biology, center of picture) presented her work on a new method for improving the visibility of a group of very small aquatic crustaceans. The overall goal of this part of the project is to be able to study the movement of these animals in response to chemical signals in tank experiments. The method is being developed in collaboration with AU biology and environmental science faculty, Dr. Andrew Greene and Dr. Patty Saunders, who were co-authors on the presentation. In addition to her studies and directed research project, Rachel is the 2010-2011 President of AU's biology honorary (Beta Beta Beta).
