Langston Gash has been selected for a Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Spring 2019 Biology Student Travel Award for an abstract submitted to the Northeast Natural History Conference 2019. Langston is a Biology major here at Stevenson University with an interest in Ecology. He is also a member of the Cross Country Team. The abstract that was submitted is a part of his Fall 2018 BIO 365 research on campus with Dr. Mark Norris. The objective of his research was to explore and describe the development of animal communities along a chronosequence of forest restoration plots in order to evaluate the progression of reforestation efforts. The results suggest that the reforestation efforts are slowly shifting the natural communities from that of a meadow to that common in forests. Congratulations Langston!
