Each spring student members of the BI 301 General Ecology Lab design and carry out thier own ecological research, and many take place at the Raystown Field Station, due to its diverse habitats, accessibility and the extensive past research that students can reference andfurther. Below are links to the Journal of Ecological Research, published by Dr. Douglas Glazier.

Prior to 2002, the Journal was published as a single unit, and direct links to artcles pertaining to the RFS are not available at this time.
