School of Engineering Newsletter

Your LSSU Alumni office wants to keep you updated with all of the news and events that are happening in the School of Engineering & Technology at LSSU. We hope you enjoy reading this newsletter.

Dr. Stephen Kolomyjec

With funding from the Huron Mountain Wildlife Foundation, Dr. Stephen Kolomyjec, zoologist, took two LSSU undergraduate research students (Eric Somsky, Fisheries and Wildlife, and Mallory McNulty, Conservation Biology) to the Huron Mountain Club for 8 days to perform a biological survey of freshwater sponges. During that period, 455 freshwater sponge specimens were collected from 10 lakes and 3 rivers. This presentation by Dr. Kolomyjec will explore the biology of Michigan's freshwater sponges and present the exciting findings of this survey. This successful project will add several species of freshwater sponge to the Huron Mountain Club's All Taxa Biodiversity Index (ATBI) while providing valuable field and lab experience to the students.
