Climate is changing at accelerated rates across the globe, and under these novel environmental conditions species will need to adapt or perish. For the 3rd year of the Pollinator in Changing Climates NSF-IRES course, we have continued investigating the physiological and functional traits of plants and pollinators to better predict species responses to the rapid ongoing environmental changes. In 2023, we worked with 9 students from the USA and Colombia and 4 mentors from Penn […]
The impact of climate change on plant-pollinator interactionsThis International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program will provide undergraduate students with an eight-week international research experience working with mentors from Penn State and Universidad Militar Nueva Granada in Colombia. Projects will focus on studying how environmental factors impact plant-pollinator interactions in mountain ecosystems. Students will participate in interdisciplinary research guided by mentors representing entomology, ecology, engineering, and climate science. Students will receive $4,500 for their participation […]
