Field Sites for Graduate Research

The breadth of research that defines our department translates into a diverse graduate student body comprised of varied research interests and techniques. Our graduate students utilize a variety of sites throughout the commonwealth, and nation,  to collect samples or as a natural laboratory. The natural diversity and landscape of the commonwealth has provided opportunities for the University to acquire locations where students conduct research or are utilized as outdoor classrooms. Here we highlight various University-owned sites, sites throughout the commonwealth, nation, and world, to provide a glimpse of our graduate student body and the plethora of opportunities available for research in the department.  In addition, a sampling of graduate students provides an insight into their projects and what their thoughts on the facilities and sites available.
