Applied Biology Senior Thesis Research Projects

abbe Case quality

A water quality assessment project: With the aid of a dissolved oxygen meter, the Project team tries to determine the concentration of oxygen in the water at J.I. Case Wetland Wildlife Refuge habitat -- headed by Biology Professor Dr. Ella Ingram (center) with Civil Engineering's Dr. Michael Robinson (right).
