I’ve just recieved the good news that I’ve been awarded a Sinnott Award from the Arnold Arboretum at Harvard University to fund a project investigating physiological differences in petioles with a single or multiple vascular bundle arrangements! Super excited!
Our review of what may happen to the sugar conducting plant tissues (phloem) of trees in the winter is officially out! Still a lot we do not know!
My new review about seasonality and the implications for long distance phloem transport is now out in advance access!!
Sieve cells (rectangular cells in center third of image) in White Cedar stained with the help of an antibody specific to those cells. These are the cells that move sugar around the plant body. 🔬🌲🌱
I was recently featured in the Botanical Society of America’s spotlight series for early-career scientists. This was fun to do and a great new BSA series. 🎓
Ok 🍎, I’m in for Arcade… Mini Motorways (similar to Mini Metro), Oceanhorn 2, Skate City – ALL the games I’ve tried are very well done. This is a game changer for the App Store…
New water conducting tissue (xylem) in Boxelder! Right at the interface between the blue staining tissue and the purple staining tissue. So young it doesn’t even stain blue yet! 🌻
High quality string quartet action . I’ve been listening to this on repeat. 🎵 🎻
I didn’t sex these Boxelders before I started tracking them for this project, so it’s going to be fun to see which are male and which are female. So far 3 males, but 7 haven’t broken bud yet. 🌼
New Jenny Lewis album is is 🔥💯💯
Spring isn’t quite to Duluth yet, thankfully. Waiting for these folks to start flowering. Fraxinus pennsylvanica
