CO-MAJOR PROFESSOR Michael Hough, MS, Starting Date 6/06; Degree completed 12/08; Thesis Title : POSSIBLE LIMITING AGENTS TO THE EARLY ESTABLISHMENT AND GROWTH OF UNDERSTORY HERBS IN POST- AGRICULTURAL FORESTS IN CENTRAL NEW YORK (with T. Horton). MEMBER, STEERING COMMITTEE (other than those listed above) Keith Bowman James Costello Jennifer Gillrich Mary Penney Patricia A. Cole CHAIRMAN OR READER ON THESIS EXAMS, ETC. III. RESEARCH COMPLETED OR UNDERWAY A. Departmental Research (unsupported, boot-legged; title - % time spent) -This year I co-advised (with R. Nyland) one undergraduate UMEB student in his research activities: Max Wightman, Ground-level vegetation response to mechanical removal of American beech. (<1%). -This year I began or expanded three unfunded, experimental trials to restore forest understory vegetation using volunteer labor. These trials are located at Heiberg Forest, a municipal forest in the Town of Skaneateles, and a forest preserve in Geneva that is owned and managed by the Finger Lakes Land Trust. High school classes (Marcellus and Skaneateles), citizen volunteers and EFB General Biology students have begun trials to monitor the success of direct seeding of several native forest wildflower species. B. 1. Grant-supported Research (source, subject, amount - total award and current year, award period starting and ending dates; list graduate research assistants supported by each grant) 2. Research Proposals pending (as in B.1., above) -NSF-CCLI, “Integrated Knowledge-Based Experiences for First-Year Biology and Chemistry Laboratories,” $196,330, 6/1/10-5/31/13, with N. Abrams, V. Luzadis, D. Leopold, A. Stipanovic). -USDA Forest Service – Northeastern States Research Cooperative, “Effects of Understory Beech
