More congrats to Mae! We just learned that a manuscript based on her thesis research is ‘in press’ for Southeastern Naturalist.

We recently returned from the 73nd Annual Meeting of the Association of Southeastern Biologists in Athens, GA, during which Andrea, Jordan, and I presented our research. Congratulations to Andrea for receiving both the Southeastern Appalachian Botanical Soceity Oral Presentation Award and the North Carolina Botanical Garden Award at the meeting!

We just returned from a recent trip to the annual meeting of the Tennessee Academy of Science in Jackson, Tennessee, where Andrea and I gave talks on our Scutellaria montana and chestnut research, respectively.

A description of our recent successful transplantation of Scutellaria montana at the Enterprise South Nature Park in Chattanooga was recently published in the Journal of the Tennessee Academy of Science.

Congratulations to Mae for defending her master’s thesis earlier this week! We’ll be sad for her to leave the group (our first graduate!), but are sure she’ll be very successful in the future.

Cages for Andrea’s thesis research on the impacts of large mammal herbivory on a Catoosa County, GA, occurrence of Scutellaria montana are in the field, where they’ll remain (hopefully!) through the next two summers.

Congrats to Mae for being named a co-recipient of this year’s Sigma Xi Outstanding Research Award at UTC!

We just returned from a successful trip to the 72nd Annual Meeting of the Association of Southeastern Biologists in Huntsville, AL, during which Mae, Andrea and I presented our research. Congrats to our UTC collegues Emily Blyveis in Dr. Joey Shaw’s lab for receiving two student research awards from the Southern Appalachian Botanical Society and George Campbell in Dr. Margaret Kovach’s lab for receiving the ASB poster award!
