Biological Station, University of Michigan (UMBS)


The University of Michigan Biological Station (UMBS), founded in 1909, is dedicated to education and research in field biology and related environmental sciences.

In a world that is undergoing unprecedented changes in land use, climate, resource extraction and species distributions, a major goal of the UMBS must be to produce biologically knowledgeable graduates who are prepared to understand, deal with and solve environmental problems.

This collection of student papers are research efforts of students enrolled in courses at the Biological Station, either in spring term or in summer term. Such research efforts are required for completion of coursework at "Bug Camp." They do not include the editorial comments or the assigned grade by the faculty member of those courses. As such, they have not been vetted in any way. These student papers were written primarily for educational purposes.
