Lake Forest College Mini-internship

Over the course of four Wednesdays spread throughout November and October, we in the Echinacea lab were fortunate enough to have two students from Lake Forest College’s plant biology course. These students, Daniel and Kyle, looked at this year’s (2015) flowering plants that were in the aphid addition and exclusion experiment. They dissected, scanned, counted, and x-rayed the seed heads to determine seed set in these plants then made a poster and did a presentation for their class. It was wonderful to have them here and their contribution to the Echinacea Project will be very useful as we move on with the aphid addition and exclusion experiment.

You can find their poster here.
