The REU-China program at Alabama A & M University and Nanjing Forestry University is an opportunity for undergraduates and graduates to engage in research in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. We were mentored by graduate students and faculty from AAMU and NFU. We worked on research in areas of forestry and plant sciences, insects and wildlife ecology, molecular biology and genetics, soil mineralogy and biogeochemistry, hydrology and environmental monitoring, landscape ecology, and human interactions. We were required to conduct field sampling/site visits, data analysis, and scientific writing. We attended seminars and workshops on research and career planning. At the end of the program, participants prepared a final report, a poster, and presented their research at a research symposium. We also received a stipend, dining card, and were housed in dormitories on the historical campus of AAMU.
