Undergraduates Shine in Research

Many congratulations to Fauna, Harrison, Abrianna, and Callie, who presented their research during posters sessions this week.  Fauna and Harrison’s work in the UROP program has helped us to understand how mycorrhizal fungi influence the phenotype of milkweed plants.  Abrianna has shown how food quality and infection with disease influence monarch wing shape.  Callie’s Honors Thesis describes how the chemistry of milkweed plants under environmental change influences the population dynamics of aphids.  We’re so proud of you all.
