Undergraduate Research Symposium Spring 2016
Alexandra Kois and Marisa Brudny presented their research at the Spring 2016 Undergraduate Symposium! Alexandra is working with graduate student Danny Minahan and examined the pollen brought back to the hive by bumble bees over the summer months to determine the foraging patterns of bumble bees.
Marisa worked with graduate student Austin Bauer and examined how temperature and salinity affected seed germination of different alfalfa cultivars.
We had a great time at the Biology 152 mentored research poster session on December 8! There was great undergraduate research being presented from all over campus, including from two of our very own. Congrats to Erica and Kyle on their achievements this past semester!
Erica Shaffer presented preliminary results from her research comparing the pollen foraging choices of honey bees (Apis mellifera) and bumble bees (Bombus impatiens). Erica will be continue this research throughout the spring semester!
Mentor: Danny Minahan and Johanne Brunet
The upcoming General Biology 152 Poster session will be occurring next week on Tuesday Dec. 8 @ 5pm! The Brunet Lab will have two undergraduates, Erica Shaffer and Kyle Krellwitz showcasing their research from this past semester. Please come down and see the results of their projects, as well as the diversity of research conducted by UW undergraduates.
We’ve got forests of Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) in the greenhouse. Can
