Entomology Internships

960 636 Stroud Water Research Center

The Stroud Center is seeking science majors to serve as laboratory assistants in a biological water quality analysis of the Schuylkill and Delaware River Basins.

Supporting Citizen Science Within the Delaware River Watershed Initiative Cluster Team

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The Stroud Center is working to expand and encourage higher-quality citizen-science monitoring and volunteer participation in the Delaware River Initiative cluster of streams.

Restoring Flood Attenuation and Ecological Resiliency in the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

For this project, scientists and watershed restoration professionals restore one headwater basin to reduce flooding downstream, improve water quality, and increase stream-ecosystem resilience so that it will once again support a breeding population of native brook trout and other coldwater fish.

Pathogen and Water-Quality Monitoring at White Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists are monitoring water quality near and below dairy farms in the White Clay Creek and Red Clay Creek watersheds to measure the effectiveness of best management practices to reduce the amount of pathogens in the streams.

Parthenogenesis (Virgin Reproduction), Hybridization, and Life History Plasticity in Mayflies

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists are studying a number of mayfly species in White Clay Creek as well as in streams throughout eastern North America to better understand virgin reproduction and hybridization in mayflies, confirm the biological integrity of species that are genetically distinct but have the same name, and develop valuable laboratory techniques for mating and rearing aquatic insects.

Macroinvertebrate Monitoring at Sites in White Clay Creek, Pa., Flint River, Ga., Mississippi River, Mo., Susquehanna River, Pa., and Delaware River, Pa.

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

These projects use aquatic macroinvertebrates such as mayflies, stoneflies, and caddisflies to provide assessments of current water quality in these streams and rivers.

Integration of Physiological, Life-History, and Macro-Ecological Approaches for Understanding Thermal Limitation in Aquatic Insects: Implications for Freshwater Biodiversity in a Warming World

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

In this project, we test the hypothesis that temperature limits the distributions of aquatic insects through its effect on resource allocation, and that warming decreases reproduction by shunting energy away from egg production to other metabolic processes.

Ecotoxicity Study for Mayflies Exposed to Elevated Concentrations of Sulfate

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

This project measures responses of six mayfly species exposed to elevated sulfate concentrations in water from three Exceptional Value streams in Pennsylvania as well as in White Clay Creek at the Stroud Center.
