MSRP 2023-2024

Title: Investigating eco-evo changes over time and space using herbariums

Contact: Lua Lopez Perez, California State University, San Bernardino:

Project Status: This project will run through the 2023-24 academic year. Contact Lua to become involved.

Project Description: This MSRP seeks to understand how plants change through time and space in response to their environment. Specifically, this MSRP aims to explore carbon isotope ratios in herbarium and contemporary plant specimens to evaluate how water use efficiencies change across a coast to inland gradient, and during periods of drought and changes in climate. MSRP faculty plan to collaborate with the 2023-24 CURE and MURE faculty.
