The LagoLab was busy attending our favorite conferences this summer!
At Evolution 2019 in Providence, RI, Laura L. gave an invited talk in an SSE symposium on Integrating Ecological Interactions into Macroevolution (YouTube link) and former undergraduate Lauren Frankel presented a poster titled, "The promises and pitfalls of herbarium phylogenomics: A case study in a Neotropical plant radiation" (top photo at right).
At Botany 2019 in Tucson, AZ, Laura L. presented a poster on ongoing NSF-funded herbarium integration at LSU, postdoc Laura Frost gave TWO talks (one on her dissertation research on Citharexylum and a second on her current work in Freziera, middle photo at right), incoming graduate student Laymon Ball presented a poster on her undergraduate research into the reproductive biology of Justicia californica, and grad student Janet Mansaray was a mentor in the PLANTS program (the same program in which she was an mentee as an undergraduate!).
We are located at:
