Olivia Allen and Ally Whiteis, undergraduate students in the Odum School of Ecology (and working with doctoral students Nathan Tomczyk and Carolyn Cummins) presented their research results at the UGA CURO symposium on April 4th.
Both students found that stream organisms and food resources changed due to streamwater warming. Their experiments ranged from field measurements of algae in an experimentally warmed stream to laboratory studies of microbial responses to temperature.
