Systematics.  The program will take place May 22-July 28 2017 in the
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of
Kansas. In this ten week program, students will participate in mentored,
independent research and receive training in research support skills.

theoretical models, but also testing of models (empirical work). More

math and computer science majors are encouraged to apply.
