Rhododendron Grant for Pfenningwerth

Alix Pfenningwerth, a graduate student in the Schweitzer Lab, won a Fellowship from the American Rhododendron Society this summer.  Her research proposes to study how genetic variation in Rhododendron species influences physiological performance under a changing climate, including increasingly fluctuating temperatures, moisture regimes, soil nutrient cycling, and interactions with pathogens, herbivores, and beneficial microbes.
