Bruederle presents co-authored paper with former student
Carol English (M.S., 2008) and Leo P. Bruederle, associate professor of integrative biology, co-authored a paper with Aaron Wenzel and Andi Wolfe (The Ohio State University) that was delivered at the annual meeting of the Botanical Society of America held in St. Louis. Their paper addressed the reproductive biology and genetic diversity in Penstemon degeneri (Plantaginaceae), a rare species that is restricted in distribution to Colorado. This collaborative research examines the apportionment of genetic diversity in Degener’s beard tongue within the context of its pollination biology, which was described by English for her M.S. degree. Carol is currently a botanist at Yosemite National Park.
