Research, naturally: Cofrin grants recipients share results (and video)

Members of the UW-Green Bay campus and community are invited to attend a symposium presented by student researchers of the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity.

The 2012 Cofrin Student Symposium will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 6 in the 1965 Room of the University Union. Presenting their results will be nine UW-Green Bay students who were awarded grants generously donated by the Cofrin family to complete independent research at one or more Cofrin Biodiversity Center-managed natural areas.

1:28 pm Nick Janak“The effect of dead fine root inputs on soil microbial biomass and enzyme activity – the path to soil organic matter accumulation.”
1:46 pm Mark Wolf“Spatial and temporal variation in frog breeding activity at the Toft Point Natural Area in Door County, Wisconsin.”
