Into the Woods – Dr. Lesley Bulluck works with undergraduate students to investigate the spread of West Nile Virus.

Species Distribution and Climate Change – VCU Biology professor, Andrew Eckert, Ph.D. studies ways to help the Southwestern White Pine navigate climate change and disease.

The Prothonotary Warbler Project – The Prothonotary Warbler Project at VCU aims to understand the whole life cycle ecology of the Prothonotary Warbler, a migratory songbird, by studying this species in its breeding grounds in Virginia and in its wintering grounds in Panama.  The Prothonotary Warble project believes that through collaboration we can learn from each other and together, make a larger impact on species conservation than any individual or organization can alone.  Learn more about this amazing species through the film found here:
