Genetic studies in Bunched Arrowhead and Oconee Bells

Posted on |

Many plants can reproduce sexually by seed or asexually by root sprouts or other means. Some plants can do both. Why does this matter? In Professor Ashley Morris’s lab at Furman University, they are investigating clonal structure in the federally endangered bunched arrowhead and the state-listed Oconee bells using genetic tools. During this program, she will provide some preliminary data from the work that students have been doing this summer, with thoughts about possible implications for these two rare species.  Read more about Oconee Bells here.
