Diana Soteropoulos

Botanist

Travis Marsico, professor of botany at Arkansas State University, will share his experience when he was a master's student (2001-2004) working on botany and ecology research in the Ouachita Mountains. His master's work resulted in the collection of more than 5,000 specimens, and these data were collected at a time when specimen and data sharing was not fully digital or standardized. There has been a great need to transcribe data from these specimens and Arkansas volunteers have made a huge positive impact.  The seminar will focus on some key findings of a floristic inventory in Montgomery County, a discussion of ecological research conducted on a rare, endemic species, Hydrophyllum brownei, and how recent effort from volunteers is mobilizing the data from a project conducted 20 years ago. Participants can join via Zoom at https://arkansas.zoom.us/j/89868140434 . The session can also be accessed toll-free via telephone at 877-336-1828 with conference code 3899122.
