Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – Students from Northern Michigan UniversityÂ’s ecology theory and methods class will present their independent research projects from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 8, in the New Science Facility room 1208.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The projects were designed, implemented and analyzed by the students. They will focus on a variety of topics such as plant growth, animal behavior and population dynamics. Some of the questions that will be addressed are: Do coffee grounds really help your plants? What is the effect of acid rain? Do fighting fish ever make friends?  What are squirrels really saying? Are deer that are harvested in the northern part of Marquette County different than in the southern part?

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  This scientific poster session is free and open to the public.  It is also informal; attendees can come and go at any time.  Approximately 25 posters will be displayed and the students welcome questions and comments about their work. 

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  For more information, contact the biology department at 227-2310.
