Life Sciences Seminar
Biology Without Walls: Student Research Presentations

Biology Without Walls Students
RIT Biology Class
Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences, RIT

Biology Without Walls is an immersive field course. The students will present research findings from a glaciated, protected field site to understand the impacts of climate change and humans on ecosystems.

A team of Life Science students and faculty have spent the Fall semester delving in to a real-world field course. Together they have explored terrestrial, aquatic, invertebrate, vertebrate, plants and fungus together to understand the impacts of climate change and humans on ecosystems from the perspective of a glaciated, protected field site. The students have worked with RIT faculty and networked with Water Quality managers to better understand the application of their book knowledge in an immersive experience. The students have developed their own research projects comparing the field site to sites around Rochester and will present their findings. In addition, the students will address the pros and cons of a semester field course for them in their academic program, and answer questions of students who might want to take the course in the future.

Intended Audience:
