Research in the Biology Department

The biology faculty at Hartwick all maintain active research programs involving our students, and all biology students must complete a senior thesis, which usually involves independent research in some area of biology. Research interests within the department range from gene expression in plants to amphibian development to arthropod neuroanatomy to avian mating systems —and lots in between! General descriptions of faculty research interests are available on our faculty and staff page. More detailed online descriptions of some of the research conducted by faculty and students are available by following the links below.
