In the fall semester of 2004, the students in BIO 4310 Biological Research Project, undertook a project that examined microbial diversity in the water surrounding the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, Texas. This bridge is the roosting site for approximately 1.5 million bats! Their poster was presented at The Student Conference for Research and the Creative Arts at The University of Houston Clear Lake on April 20-21st, 2005.
The poster title was: Distribution patterns of aerobic bacterial species under a bridge inhabited by the bat species Tadarida brasiliensis. Authors: S. Arreola, J. Breyer, T. Crabb, R. Flores, L. Le, B. Medrano, and C. Rainey
