Sci 368U Green Roof Ecology

An Undergraduate Research Experience investigating how green roof plant communities function in an urban rooftop environment. Working in small groups, students pursue an original research project and deliver a final technical report to PSU green roof researchers. The research topic changes each term – potential topics include plant communities; urban habitats and climate resilience; ecological services provided by green roofs; or impacts on air and water quality. Assignments focus on scientific writing and real-world research practices.
