This year, Monica Wilkinson applied and successfully received funding from the College of Natural Resources’ SPUR program to conduct her own independent research in Hawaii. Monica and I then traveled to Hawaii in June for what was one of the most intense field seasons I’ve had yet, and collected lots of data from the field. Monica will then continue processing the samples in the Fall and Spring semester. Hopefully her work will be a great continuation of the invasive ginger work that Gregg has conducted in the past.
