Graduate Students and Research Assistants are Integral Part of the AABP Mission
The AABP team is
dedicated to education and training through hands-on work in the field,
museum, and laboratory in Texas and Peru. Scientists on the project are
involved with training graduate students as well as field research
assistants. And the scientists learn just as much from the students and
field research assistants. During 2005-2008 the following groups have received training and education from the AABP team:
Ph.D. students (1)
M.S. students (7 or more)
- Peruvian field research assistants and students (6 or more)
- Collaborating team of scientists, students, and local residents
and the AABP have teamed up with universities in Texas in order to
offer unique graduate studies and research opportunitites for students.
BRIT and the TCU College of Science and Engineering have rapidly forged
a relationship that has enabled at least six students to earn M.S.
degrees in Biology or Environmental Sciences by conducting thesis projects
in southeastern Peru. These students have studied a variety of topics that one can easily read about throughout this website.
