Environmental Science & Ecology Graduate Students Present Research

Graduate students (Thomas Blower, Colin Clark, Nicholas Farese, and Jarrod Ludwig) presented their research at the SUNY Graduate Conference held virtually on April 11, 2023.

The second edition of the SUNY Graduate Research Conference brought together graduate student researchers and faculty mentors from across the SUNY system and provided a forum to disseminate research and scholarly activities through panel contributions and poster presentations in all academic disciplines.
