Emma O’Donnell joins the lab this summer through the DaRin Butz Foundation program at the Arnold Arboretum. She will be working with Austin on characterizing reproductive barriers between sympatric Phlox species.
Robin is awarded a grant to study pollen-pistil interaction in Phlox through the NSF Plant Biotic Interactions program.
The 4th year graduate students in OEB presented their research to the department. Ben talked about his reciprocal transplant experiment testing the potential role of local adaptation in Phlox speciation.
