Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries Science

July 14 - 19, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Develop skills in capturing, identifying, and comparing the animal communities, from insects to fish, that live in our local streams, lakes, and rivers. You will gain experience using basic aquatic ecology research techniques and equipment, including nets, traps, seines, and water quality meters. Learn the basics of fisheries science: set fyke nets and minnow traps, practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory.

Biomedical Sciences

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Learn and experiment in the state of the art science labs at LSSU. Labs will include dissections in the anatomy lab, experiments in the physiology lab, and DNA extraction in the genetics lab. This is an excellent camp for all who are interested in science, medicine, and health. 

Field Ecology and Environmental Science

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Field activities will include plant and animal identification, landscape interpretation, habitat analysis, stream quality assessment, mammal tracking, bird banding, aquatic insect analysis, night time insect trapping, and more. You will do background research and work up field samples in our biology labs that you collected. Analyze your data in our computer labs and learn how GIS and other computer applications help in ecology and conservation biology.practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory. 

 

Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: A compara- tive Study between Spatter for Human and Porcine Blood

Jessica Beaudry

The forensic investigation of violent crimes and deaths lead to one of the most significant and frequently encountered types of physical evidence, blood. From the early discoveries and advances in technology, the field of forensics continues to grow, especially in the field of bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA). It is necessary to devise experiments or controlled reproductions to continue the expansion of the BPA field. Human blood can be extremely dangerous due to infectious diseases. There are a few safer alternatives to using human blood and they include using spatter training blood and porcine blood. This study focuses on the comparison between human, porcine, Evident, and Sirchie spatter training blood. The data strongly indicates that while porcine blood is comparable to human blood, Evident and Sirchie spatter training blood is not.
