Marking the culmination of nearly three months with Harvard Forest's Summer Research Program in Ecology, 21 undergraduate students recently presented on their research at Harvard Forest's 30th Annual Student Symposium. Student researchers presented on topics such as carbon storage and modeling, the impacts of introduced species on culturally important plants, soil warming and its effects on belowground carbon, and methane emissions of different tree species at Harvard Forest.

This year's diverse cohort of participants came from 17 undergraduate institutions to participate in an immersive research experience with research mentors from throughout Harvard University (Harvard Forest, Arnold Arboretum, OEB), UMass Amherst, Yale School for the Environment, the University of British Columbia, the University of New Hampshire, Boston University, the University of Maine, the University of Florida, and the Advanced Science Research Center at the CUNY Graduate Center. Many thanks to this year's Assistant Program Coordinator, Abigayl Novak, for coordinating weekly seminars, workshops, field excursions, and a career panel.
