Research Project

Effects of Urbanization on Phototactic Insects

My project is looking at the impact of urbanization on phototactic insects in the Gainesville area. Samples were collected at multiple sites across a gradient of urbanization over a one year time period. Data about populations of the selected study insects will be collected and analyzed to determine how urbanization impacts insects with different traits.
