1999 Undergraduate Laerm Award Winners
The undergraduate award in 1999 was to Nathan Nazdrowicz, of the Institute of Ecology. His proposal was entitled "Effects of Invasive Exotic Vegetation on Plant Community Dynamics." He requested support to attend the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) meetings where he presented a poster on the result of his research under the direction of Dr. Gary W. Barrett on the effects of invasive exotic vegetation on plant community dynamics at Horseshoe Bend Experimental Site. Mr. Nazdrowicz planned to submit a manuscript to Ecological Restoration/North America. AIBS was held at the Smithsonian Institution. Nathan eventually became an Intern with the Museum.
