Kamil Duracka, a student from Slovakia, has begun a 5-month internship with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Southeast Ecological Science Center (SESC) Dynamics of Land Margin Ecosystems project. The principal investigator for this project is research ecologist Thomas J. Smith III, stationed in St. Petersburg, Florida. Duracka's internship is at the Everglades Field Station (Dan Beard Center) in Everglades National Park. The USGS works cooperatively through the National Park Service's International Volunteers in Parks (IVIP) Program to facilitate international student exchange in National Parks. Duracka has a Masters degree in physical geography and is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program in physical geography at Masaryk University, Czech Republic. Duracka is working closely with USGS staff Gordon Anderson and Karen Balentine.
