Bergbaukultur am Oberrhein

Neues Projekt erhält mehr als 1,8 Millionen Euro aus dem INTERREG-Programm der Europäischen Union

Die Anfänge der Industriekultur am Oberrhein: Ein neuer Forschungsverbund zu diesem Thema erhält für die kommenden drei Jahre insgesamt mehr als 1,8 Millionen Euro aus dem europäischen Programm für grenzüberschreitende Projekte INTERREG V Oberrhein. An dem Vorhaben nehmen 18 Universitäten und wissenschaftliche Einrichtungen aus Deutschland, Frankreich und Österreich teil, mit den Universitäten Freiburg, Haute-Alsace und Strasbourg zudem drei Partner aus dem trinationalen Verbund am Oberrhein „EUCOR – The European Campus“. An der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität ist ein Team um Prof. Dr. Sebastian Brather vom Institut für Archäologische Wissenschaften beteiligt.

‘Life as Research Scientist’: Shelley Rogers, Entomologist

Shelley Rogers is an entomologist and farmer, living in Cedar Grove, North Carolina. She studied pollination, specifically blueberry pollination. Shelley is deeply passionate about biodiversity. Recently we spoke with Shelley about her research, current occupation and more.

So let’s join to our latest round of interview with Shelley Rogers on ‘life as research scientist’:

Q. Let us start with your research topic. What is your research area? Will you please tell us a bit more on this? What did you find?

Shelley Rogers:  As a Master’s student, I studied pollination in agricultural ecosystems. I was specifically interested in blueberry pollination, and my research was focused around questions such as which bees are pollinating blueberry; do different pollinator species vary in the frequency of their visitation, their efficiency at pollinating blueberry, or with respect to the environment; and how do  these bees interact and affect one another. For my most recently published study, I wanted to see if successful blueberry pollination was related to bee species diversity, and, if so, how. I found that pollination increased with increasing diversity, and proposed several mechanisms underlying this relationship. (more…)
