Scholarship for Pfennigwerth

Alix Pfennigwerth (Schweitzer Lab) was awarded a Natural Areas Association Student Scholarship to fund her travel, lodging and registration to attend the Natural Areas Conference in Little Rock Arkansas, Nov 3-5, 2015.  She will present results from her EEB Master’s work there. Her talk, called “Inferring response to climate change from natural laboratories: is there convergence in plant functional traits across multiple elevational gradients in Rhododendron maximum?” discusses how patterns from her field and common garden experiments are relevant to conservation professionals and can be used to inform conservation planning for future natural areas under climate change. The award is from the Natural Areas Association with donor support from Bureau of Land Management.
