Katherine MunizPaulson Water Challenge Summer Researcher
My name is Katherine Muniz and I'm part of Wellesley's Class of 2022. I will be majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Chemistry. My favorite place at Wellesley is anywhere around the lake. This year I was a part of the Water Challenge's Biodiversity team. We focused on how different water sources would affect the life surrounding Paramecium Pond. In our research, we used plankton as a determinate, although plankton may seem insignificant they are at the bottom of the food web therefore any change in population would have a domino effect on the rest of the biodiversity.
