    NARRATOR:Listen to a conversation between a student and an ecology professor.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:I have some good news for you.One of the students who was signed up for the summer term at the field station next year won't be attending after all.Your name's first on the waiting list, so if you still want to do it, the space is available.

    MALE STUDENT:Aw, that's terrific!

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:You were also interested in doing an independent research project next summer, right?

    MALE STUDENT:Yeah, on salt-marsh restoration—but that was before, when I thought I wasn't going to get into the field station.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Well, you can still do it if you want.I looked over your application for the independent research project, and it looks strong: I approved it.And you'd have even more resources there at the field station, so...

    MALE STUDENT:[thoughtful, musing tone] The field station and an independent study...But the summer term is a few weeks shorter than a regular term...

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Wh-it's up to you. You'd have to work hard, but I think you can do very well.Professor Garfield-one of the professors over at the field station-

    MALE STUDENT:[interrupting] Yeah, I've heard of him.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Yes, well, Professor Garfield's been doing research on salt marshes for years, assessing human impact and methods of salt-marsh restoration.He's willing to oversee your project.

    MALE STUDENT:Wow!That's too good an opportunity to pass up.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:[positive tone with happy chuckle] I thought you'd say that.When I spoke with Dr. Garfield, he suggested you take a particular course he'll be teaching here in the spring...it's called Advanced Topics in Salt-Marsh Management.The course looks at salt-marsh ecology in-depth, and it also focuses on factors that stress salt-marsh systems, and how to assess and monitor the level of stress.

    MALE STUDENT:[excitedly] And that background information will fit right into my project on salt-marsh restoration. This is so great.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Oh, one more thing. Do you know John Arnold?

    MALE STUDENT:Not really, But he lives in my dorm. Why?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:John's another ecology student who'll be at the field station next summer. I approved an independent research project for him, too.Initially he had the same concern as you. But anyway, his topic will be similar to yours.He'll be researching how bridges and culverts that have been installed to allow tidal waters to move underneath roads between the sea and the salt marshes.Well, they're often too small...

    MALE STUDENT:I guess that would result in not enough tidal water flowing into the marshes to maintain the natural vegetation, right?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Exactly. And he'll be looking at how to determine the right size.So I was thinking he might be a good choice for a summer roommate for you.

  • 旁白:请听一个学生和生态学教授之间的对话。

    教授:我有一些好消息要告诉你。有一个报名参加明年实验站的夏季学期的学生去不了了。你的名字在候补名单的第一个,所以如果你还想做的话,这个位置现在是空着的。

    学生:哦,太棒了!

    教授:你还有兴趣明年夏天做一个独立的研究项目,对吧?

    学生:是的,关于盐沼恢复的,但那是之前我以为我进不了实验站的时候的想法。

    教授:如果你有这个想法的话还是可以做啊。我看过你申请进行独立研究项目的申请表了,看起来很优秀,我批准了。而且你在实验站那里会有更多资源,所以......

    学生:兼顾实验站和一个独立研究啊...可是夏季学期比正常的学期要短好几个星期。

    教授:那就要看你自己了。你必须得非常努力,不过我觉得你会做得很好的。Garfield教授,就是实验站那边的教授之一......

    学生:是的,我听说过他。

    教授:没错,是这样的,Garfield教授进行盐沼的研究已经好多年了,他一直在评估人类的影响以及恢复盐沼的方法。他愿意指导你的项目。

    学生:哇,这个机会太棒了,决不能错过啊。

    教授:我就猜到你会这么说。我跟Garfield博士聊这件事的时候,他建议你选修一下他春天会在这里教授的一个专门的课程...名字叫做盐沼管理的高级主题。这门课会深入分析盐沼的生态,还会关注给盐沼系统施加压力的因素以及如何评估和监控压力水平。

    学生:这些背景信息刚好符合我的盐沼恢复项目,简直太棒了!

    教授:哦,还有一件事,你跟John Arnold熟吗?

    学生:不太熟,不过他住在我宿舍,怎么了?

    教授:John是另一个明年夏天会去实验站的生态专业学生。我也批准了他的一个独立研究项目。最开始的时候他也有着和你一样的担忧。但是不管怎样,他的主题跟你的很相似。他会研究被安装用来允许潮水在海和盐沼之间的道路之下移动的桥梁和涵洞,它们通常都太小了。

    学生:我猜这会导致没有足够的潮水流进沼泽中保持自然植被的生长,对吗?

    教授:没错,他会研究怎样确定正确的大小。所以我觉得他对你来说可能会是个很好的暑期舍友人选。

    音频定位:I have some good news for you. One of the students who was signed up for the summer term at the field station next year won’t be attending after all. Your name’s first on the waiting list, so if you still want to do it, the space is available. 

    选项分析:教授说一个报名参加明年夏季学期项目的学生不能参加了,空出来一个名额,这个学生就可以参加了,所以C选项正确。
