Project Ideas

A major objective of the REU Program is to give undergraduate students an opportunity to conduct independent research. Mentors for the REU Program have expertise in a broad range of ecological disciplines, and could advise on a range of topics related to the ecology of Chihuahuan desert shrubland, desert grassland, and arid land river and riparian ecosystems. Mentors were invited to describe potential projects that would be available to students participating in the REU program. This list is not a complete list of projects available.
