Rigorous quantitative and qualitative research is an important component of academic learning in Environmental Studies. This independent learning opportunity is designed to allow advanced students to delve into real-world research with faculty who are currently engaged in specific projects. The program will help students develop vital skills in research design, data acquisition and interpretation, written and oral communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills - all of which are of particular value for students who are pursuing a graduate degree, as well as for graduates who are already in the job market.

John Longino studies insect taxonomy and ecology, with a specific research focus on ants. His research program is a combination of field work in Costa Rica and collections-based research at the Evergreen campus. Students may become involved in local or neo-tropical fauna studies, with field- and/or collections-based activities.
