As an undergraduate student, you have an opportunity to gain research experience that is typically experienced by master's or doctoral students. Previous students have worked side-by-side with faculty on researching or investigating:

  • conservation of plant diversity
  • plant community ecology
  • floristic inventories of natural areas
  • vegetation monitoring in response to fire management
  • ultrastructure, physiology, and taxonomy of fungi
  • climate and pollution stress effects on forest communities
  • landscape analysis of regional plant communities
