Kallyn Buschkamp
SIOUX CITY -- Kallyn Buschkamp of Cherokee, a senior math and chemistry major at Briar Cliff University, will be presenting the results of his summer research at the Mathematical Association of America and American Mathematical Society (MAA-AMS) National Conference in New Orleans in January 2011.

Buschkamp and four students from other colleges and universities were selected based on their presentations at the Nebraska Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Applied Mathematics Mini-Conference in July.

Using a mathematical life history model for perennial plants, Buschkamp and his team studied the effects of the consumption of plants and seeds by herbivores and determined the optimal plant reproductive strategy for those plants.

The REU Conference, which was attended by hundreds of college and university faculty and students from around the U.S., was part of an eight-week summer research program sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
