Audrey Colnar - Invasions Ecology Lab

University of Southern Colorado, Pueblo, CO

I am a recent graduate of the University of Southern Colorado, in Pueblo, CO. This summer I participated with the Marine Invasions Lab in the National Fouling Survey. The purpose of the survey is to study the occurrence of invasive marine invertebrates and their invasion patterns in the United States coastal waters. While participating in this survey, I was able to travel, with fellow interns and staff, to Jacksonville, FL; Norfolk, VA; and San Francisco, CA. My individual project involved performing a preliminary analysis of the data obtained from Norfolk and San Francisco. I compared the structural and morphotaxa compositions of Chesapeake Bay and San Francisco Bay.
