Graduating biological science majors Andres Cisneros, Mauricio Gomez and Nicole Tronske will present their research at the annual Southern California Ecosystems Research Program (SCERP) Showcase Friday, May 9, at Cal State Fullerton.

SCERP offers undergraduates in biological science with opportunities to perform independent research and prepare for careers in ecology and environmental biology.

Cisneros is investigating the effects of a restored oyster bed on the local clam community; Gomez is studying the effects of heat stress on predation risk for intertidal molluscan organisms; and Tronske is examining densities and habitat distributions of oysters in Southern California. They were recognized for their outstanding research work at the May 1 College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics annual awards reception.

Continuing SCERP scholars also will present posters on their ongoing research at the 5:30-7:30 p.m. showcase in the Titan Student Union Pub. For more information about the program, visit the website.
