Dr. Kala Bonner helps students learn the best techniques when working in a lab.
Dr. Megan Kobiela’s lab investigates how pesticides and other pollutants affect butterflies.
She also teaches BIOL 337 where directed research in Ornithology investigates how birds respond to urban-rural gradients.
Dr. Lili Lei and her students study the effects of human activities, e.g., various kinds of land management, on the productivity of agricultural crops, soil carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling (e.g., Nitrogen cycle), and surface water quality (e.g. brownification and microplastic pollution).
Dr. John F. Morrissey and his students study the biology of sharks and rays. In recent years, they have investigated the reproduction, behavioral ecology, age and growth, feeding, and visual adaptations of lemon sharks in the Bahamas, a new species of gulper shark from the Cayman Trench (between Jamaica and Cuba), cownose rays in Chesapeake Bay, and chain catsharks in his lab on campus.
