The Rosemond lab hosted 2 REU students this summer

Q studied shredder physiology this summer

This past summer the Rosemond lab hosted two NSF-funded REU students. One of the students was supported through the Coweeta Long-term Ecological Research program. Anna came from Tennessee to work with us. She studied how temperature influeces the uptake of nutrients in headwater streams by conducting a series of lab experiments. Q visited from Chatam University and studied how temperature influences shredder physiology. She conducted a lab experiment with a shredding stonefly common to Coweeta and measured growth, consumption, and egestion across a temperature gradient.  These projects are related to our NSF-funded stream warming project and wil hopefully inform future studies.
