Ithaca College Students Win Best Poster at Yale Plant Biology Conference
Environmental science and biology students Sydney O'Shaughnessy and Adam Zelehowsky won the Best Undergraduate Poster Award at the annual plant biology conference held at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
Their poster displayed research focused on the impacts of an introduced species on coastal plant habitats on the beaches of the Puerto Rican islands.
O'Shaughnessy and Zelehowsky conducted their research with Professors Melcher and Susan Witherup. The findings of the study show that the introduced species has a high potential to outcompete the native species.
