Undergraduates show research posters Tuesday at UAF

Kimberly Diamond poses by her research poster at last's year's competition. Her poster
was on Prunus padus, or bird cherry.

Four SNRE undergraduates will show their research posters Tuesday as part of the UAF Research and Creative Activity Day hosted by URSA, the Undergraduate Research Scholarly Activity program.

UAF undergraduate students from all disciplines are invited to share their work from the past year at Wood Center. Deans or academic directors will award $250 prizes for the best entries from their college or school. The posters and displays are available for public viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and judges will visit with students from noon to 2 p.m. Last year's top overall award winner, Jessica Herzog, is a SNRE senior.

SNRE students participating this year and their projects include Trevor Schoening, ''Distribution Patterns of Alaska Grown Vegetables";  Kimberly Diamond, "Cost-Benefit Analysis of Commuting Methods in Alaska: Drive or Ride?"; David Rhodes, "Interpretive Trail of the T-field Exotic Tree Plantation"; and Roger Ridenour, "The Arctic Biosphere Container."
