Undergraduate Research Projects 

The Environmental Systems (ESYS) Program requires all students to complete a Senior Internship/Project (ESYS 190A-B). Many ESYS students have addressed topics in conservation or natural resource management at one of the UCSD Natural Reserves. Below are some of the projects that were conducted at the reserves.
