BIOL 487 - Advanced Aquatic Ecology
Provides students with an opportunity to do research in freshwater ecology. Projects are field- or laboratory-oriented investigations of either stream or lake ecology and often require a group effort. In conversation with the instructor, the student designs a study that is of mutual interest to the student and faculty member. Past projects have involved predator-prey relations or competition among stream insects, role of bank-side vegetation in influencing stream macroinvertebrate communities, bacterial/algal interactions in streams, nutrient limitation of algae, effects of insect grazers on stream algae, or the impact of acid deposition on both the structure and function of streams.
