Dr. Garcia would like to recruit computer science majors who would want to pursue undergraduate final year projects with him. The final year project would involve designing a recording system for neo-tropical species of animals. This system should also be able to store information on pedigrees, family trees and individual animal records. Additionally, he would like a math oriented program made for herd projections.

He needs 7 computer science majors to aid him in these projects; each one working on a different species of animal. These animals are the agouti, quenk, lappe, manicou, deer, cocrico and the capybara. 

Such a final year project helps to bridge the gap between different disciplines of science to produce results which benefit us all environmentally and as a society. Any final year students, who are interested, please contact Dr. Gary W. Garcia at the following addresses:
