Graduate Research

The Norris Center supports graduate students by housing research collections, supplying specimens for study/manipulation, providing natural history resources, requesting specimens from other museusms, and depositing voucher specimens associated with research projects. Currently, the Norris Center two graduate students are using the Randall Morgan Pollinator Collection to study pollinator networks and plant phenological changes. We are also currently seeking financial support for the Norris Center Graduate Fellows Program to support a graduate student to mentor undergraduates in natural history related research projects.
