My name is Sriya Gokaraju, and I will be working in the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity (AMCUKB) for the next month, where I will be looking at the relationships between invertebrates and different approaches to the management of wildlife gardens! I am an A-level student, who was awarded this project through Nuffield Science Bursaries.
I will be conducting my research, by surveying the invertebrates in the Natural History Museum's own wildlife garden and comparing it with the new wildlife garden which is part of the 'Butterfly explorers' exhibition (running 8 April - 26 September 2010 - make sure you check it out!) which is located on the Museum's East lawn.
I will be busy over the next couple of days, planning out my investigation and will commence my data collection, starting next week (weather permitting!).
Please check this space if you want to know my project is going, as I plan to keep a daily blog of all my activities!
