30th Annual Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Symposium, where 13 students will present the results of their summer research projects. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Cary Institute's REU program attracts students from all over the country.

Working with a mentor, participants craft a project, carry out research, analyze data, and present their findings. This summer, projects have included lakes in a changing global environment, the Hudson River and climate change, drivers of mammal patch occupancy, ecosystem regulation of mosquitoes, effects of pharmaceuticals on stream ecosystem, indirect effects and interactions of invasive forest pests.

Presenters: Abigail Lewis (Pomona College): Nutrient Limitation of Phytoplankton at Varying Depths in a Stratified Lake; Abigail McCrea (Oberlin College): Effects of Leaf Detritus and Nitrogen on Intra- and Interspecific Competition and Survivorship of Aedes albopictus and Culex pipiens; Byron Birss (Southern Oregon University): Assessing the Development of Scientific Curiosity and the Effect of Environmental Ethic in Children; Celestina Wright (Oberlin College): Modeling the Temperature- Dependence of Development Rate, Survival, and Adult Size in Culex Mosquitoes; Jennifer Nieves (Montclair State University): Chestnut Oak (Quercus prinus) Response to Browsing Pressure by White-Tailed Deer: Implications for C and N Allocation; Melisa Bohlman (University of Arizona): Relative Stability of Soil Organic Matter in Nitrogen Depending on Sources of Input.
