Publications by undergraduates

It is always exciting when undergraduates publish their first papers. Here are some examples of recent papers by undergraduates in Bristol, some based on their final-year projects, and others on summer internship projects. One particular summer internship programme that has yielded several publications is called At the Feet of the Dinosaurs, a study of Rhaetian bone beds around Bristol. In the list below, the undergraduates are named in bold.
