SEAS Impact

University of Michigan scientists grew various combinations of freshwater algal species in 80 artificial ponds at U-M’s E.S. George Reserve near Pinckney, Michigan in the first large-scale, controlled experiment to test the widely held idea that biodiversity can improve the performance of algal biofuel systems in the field.

This video highlights the student experience and learning opportunities available during the SEAS Master's Project. The student team evaluated farmers perceptions of climate change in Costa Rica in order to lay the groundwork for further studies that may help farmers better adapt to the climate change. The student team included Micaela Battiste, Michelle Gross, Shoaib Rahman, and Matt Gacioch.
