Our utmost concern is the safety of our students, volunteers, and teachers. There will be no in-person events, including classroom visits or campus field trips. The Young Scientist Program aims to attract students to scientific careers and increase the participation of historically-excluded groups in science by bringing resources and scientists directly to teachers and students in the St. Louis area. YSP strives to achieve this mission through diversity-focused paid summer research internships, hands-on scientific demonstrations in local classrooms, field trips to the Washington University campuses, dissemination of teaching kits containing pre-planned lessons, individual and personalized mentoring, and loaning or donating laboratory equipment to classrooms in need.

A new study shows that higher-order interactions, i. Having spent the last 15 years of my life studying networks, I have developed the deepest affection and respect for matrices. Eigenvalues put food on my table, and nothing makes me happier than a good problem that can be solved using linear algebra. Despite this love, even I can readily admit that matrices might not be sufficient to describe the interactions between species. For example, the beautiful experiments by Peacor and Werner show that the presence of a predator alters the interactions between an herbivore and its resource: the herbivore might spend less time foraging, hide more often, consume lower quality food, etc.
The following list provides some examples of topics on which faculty in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, would be interested in recruiting graduate students for entry in August This list is not exhaustive — indeed, far from it. There are other faculty members who will be recruiting students in the Department.
