This research opportunity for undergraduates will focus on lichen and bryophyte functional ecology, ecophysiology and taxonomy. Students with a strong foundation in botany, ecology, symbiosis and/or chemistry will gain experience working in the laboratory with plant and fungal samples. Students will mainly be engaging with ongoing research in Dr. Calabria' lab and may have opportunities to develop their own research projects. Projects may include methods for measuring moss and lichen functional and physiological traits, florisitic-based lichen research and ecophysiological experiments studying bryophyte-cyanobacteria symbiosis.
