Aldo Arellano '17 Studies the Ecology of Lake Mývatn

Undergraduate researcher, Aldo Arellano '17, spent last summer studing the ecology of Lake Mývatn in Iceland.  Aldo was selected to be one of four researchers to go to Iceland under the National Science Foundation's Research Experience for Undergraduates program.  The project in Iceland took an interdisciplinary approach to understanding midge flies and their influences on food webs.  Aldo's work focused on the blue-green algae, Anabaena.
