Congratulations, Lisa Kim and Devin Gamble! Well deserved!
Congratulations to Lisa and Devin, both of whom have just been awarded Mildred E. Mathias Graduate Student Research Awards to explore the process and outcome of natural selection within and among populations of Nemophila menziesii (Baby Blue Eyes: Boraginaceae) in four UC Natural Researves. The titles of their research projects are:
Lisa Kim: "Does seed size evolve? A quantitative genetic analysis of the heritability of seed mass and selection in a California-native annual "
Devin Gamble: "Dealing with drought: measuring phenotypic plasticity and its capacity to evolve across a broad geographic gradient in an iconic California wildflower”
Can't wait for our next road trip -- lions and tigers and bears, oh my! (well, no tigers yet...)
