Students will work with Dr. Mike Benard on amphibian field ecology research studies. As part of the work, students will learn about field methods and the design of ecological experiments. Additionally, each student will develop their own research project that can be completed during the summer.
Potential projects include studies of environmental effects on tadpole development, interactions between amphibians and their predators, or the habitat use of amphibians after metamorphosis.
Students will have the opportunity to interact with the other biologists working at the Edwin S. George Reserve (ESGR) and the University of Michigan.
