Half way to our goal in supporting graduate training in field education!

Send Students Into the Field

$15K will cover housing, transportation, field equipment, field trips, and lab fees for approximately 12 grad students during a 2-week field program at Archbold Biological Field Station in Florida. This effort is part of a $200K fund-raising campaign to endow field courses offered by the department. The newly formed Root-Marks Fund for Field Teaching will serve to endow field courses offered at Archbold into perpetuity.

 

Fifty Years of Field Ecology

Cornell’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology has been offering graduate student field ecology courses at Archbold Biological Station in Florida since 1970. In March of that year, Assistant Professor Dick Root, first took a handful of Cornell graduate students to Archbold Biological Station (ABS) in South-Central Florida. Since that time, Root (until his retirement), Dr. Peter Marks (until his retirement), Dr. Jed Sparks, Dr. Harry Greene, and Dr. Kelly Zamudio have brought graduate field ecology classes to ABS.

REU Student Joins the Capps Lab for the Summer!

This summer, Amber Matha joined the Capps Lab as an REU student in the Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Program at UGA. Her work this summer is focused on understanding how larval diet influences the growth and development of two mosquito taxa. After graduation, Amber intends to apply to graduate programs in public health. We are excited to have her as part of our research team!

The full impact of these courses on students, the Station, and the field of ecology is immeasurable. In 2018, the course will be offered for the 25th time, spanning a total of 50 years. Now known as BIOEE 6602, the Florida field course is designed to give graduate students experience in defining questions and designing field investigations. Although the bulk of the class is conducted at ABS, strategic side trips are made to several other distinctive ecosystems, including sand pine scrub, cattle ranches, cypress swamps, and Everglades National Park.
