During the summers of 2009 and 2010 in conjunction with a long term study of small mammal community succession following the 1988 Greater Yellowstone fires undergraduate students at the University of Wyoming/ Casper College Center are provided the opportunity to engage in independent study projects associated with the small mammal work under the leadership of Dr. Scott Burt and funded by the Wyoming IDeA Networks for Biomedical Excellence (INBRE). The students enroll in Zoology 4900 for academic credit and combine laboratory work at the UW/CC Center with fieldwork conducted while in residence at the UW/NPS Research Station.
