The University of Kentucky
is pleased to announce that in the summer of 2014, we will again host a 10-week summer program for undergraduate research on suburban ecology
and invasive species, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
Ten students will be
recruited from across the United States, and matched to faculty mentors
who are conducting research on a wide variety of invasive species (e.g.
house sparrows, Japanese honeysuckle) over a range of environments along
an urban to rural gradient, from backyards to farms.
Students will be exposed
to the full spectrum of a research project, from the underlying
ecological theory, the formulation of
hypotheses, the design of experiments, the analyses of data, and the
write up for publication.
