Taylore Willis, a Senior Interdisciplinary Studies major with concentrations in Biology and Psychology, participated in a 9-week program at the University of Montana located in Missoula. The program was sponsored by the National Science Foundation through the Introductory Multicultural Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (IM-SURE) office. While there she worked with the university's College of Forestry and Conservation under the direction of Dr. Cara Nelson.  The research she is performing is looking to determine spatial variation of soil nematodes in western Montana grasslands, and is anticipated to be completed by spring 2015 with the Biology Department at Stevenson University.  The things Taylore values most about her experience are the opportunities she was given to build professional connections, to conduct research heavily reliant on field work, and the fact that she will receive a guaranteed acceptance to her mentor's lab for graduate school.
