  • McCorkendale, Kole; Bhattarai, Ganesh P.; McCornack, Brian (2017-12-7)
    The objective of this experiment was to test if an aerial survey system could be more effective and efficient than a ground survey performed by a human. We did this by detecting markers set in a field. Effectiveness is ...
  • Beals, Brendan; Haman, Colter; Park, Yoonseong (2017-12-7)
    Although some ticks are known to stick to a host for the entirety of their life, some are known to drop off of their host after feeding to take time to molt. Of those who drop off of their host, some have been observed to ...

  • Peters, Kirbian; Marshall, Jeremy
    I am studying insect camouflage, and whether or not insects are found more on plants similar to them in color, or on just any plant. In addition to this, I am also using these results to determine if this concept differs ...
  • Tokach, Rogan; Edwardson, Fenwicht; Kim, Donghun; Park, Yoonseong
    The neuropeptide arginine vasopressin (AVP) is a multifunctional signaling peptide that is highly conserved across eukaryotic animals. In mammals, it primarily acts as an anti-diuretic and a regulator of blood pressure. ...
