To the Phragmites Student-Teacher-Scientist Partnership

A Research Collaboration Project

The Phragmites Student-Teacher-Scientist Partnership (STSP) is an opportunity for middle through college level science teachers and their students to participate in a long-term research project studying the insects living in and on the wetland plant species - Phragmites australis (also known as common reed).

The project should enhance student understanding of the research process, impacts of invasive species, biological control concepts and application, and general principles of ecology.
