Lobos, osos negros, ciervos... y 2500 dólares para estudiar biología este verano

We are taking applications for UNDERC-East summer 2008 and the potential
to participate in UNDERC-West that continues the following summer 2009.
(Additionally, applications directly for UNDERC West 2008 will be accepted
from students of Junior or Senior standing that have had prior research
experience) In each summer, you receive six credits. From the 32 students
participating in the summer 2008 at UNDERC-East, 8 students will be
selected to continue the next summer at UNDERC-West 2009. Acceptance in
either program includes tuition, housing, round trip transportation
between Notre Dame and the UNDERC site and a $2500 summer stipend.

The UNDERC-East site encompasses more than 7500 acres with abundant
wildlife (including wolves, black bear, deer, and fisher) and includes 30
lakes, several streams, wetlands, and northern forests that have been
protected for nearly a century. The UNDERC-West site encompasses more
than a million acres with abundant wildlife (including bison, elk,
mountain lion, and grizzly bear) and includes grasslands, montane forests,
streams and lakes on the Flathead Reservation in Montana and associated
tribal lands.

Each summer includes 4 - 5 modules (each a week) on field biology. At
UNDERC-East, modules include bird/mammal ecology, amphibian/reptile
ecology, insect ecology, aquatic ecology and forest ecology. At UNDERC-
West, modules include wildlife and grassland ecology, mountain ecology,
stream ecology and Native American ecology. Remaining time is spent
designing and completing an independent field research project under the
direction and assistance of a faculty member or graduate student.

Applications are available at http://underc.nd.edu/ and the extended
deadline is December 3rd, 2007.
