The following is a survey I prepared to assist in gathering some 
information on undergraduate research participation in the plant sciences.  
I would appreciate your cooperation and participation.  The survey is not 
designed to be comprehensive, but I will take suggestions on how it might 
become so, if that is necessary.
To plant education and plant biology readers:   The following is a brief survey of undergraduate
participation in the plant sciences.  As chair of the undergraduate outreach committee of  the 
Southern Section of the ASPP, I am trying to gather some information on this for the upcoming
meeting in Knoxville,TN (3/18-3/20).  I apologize for the short notice, but doing this on the 'net
just occurred to me.  Please feel free to forward the survey to colleagues or print it out and
distribute it.  I would appreciate replies by email, but will accept regular mail. Thank you.
