Interns Arrive for Summer Program in Ecology
Twenty-three summer students have arrived as part of the Harvard Forest summer research program in ecology. Students come from all over the United States to participate in on-going research projects investigating atmospheric pollution, global warming, invasive plants, watershed ecology, and insect outbreaks. Researchers come from many disciplines and institutions. Specific projects center on population and community ecology, plant physiology, insect ecology, land-use history, aquatic ecology, biogeochemistry, and atmosphere-biosphere exchanges.
