Taylor Quedensley, PhD, research botanist at BRIT will speak on “Developing a Lichen Research Program at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas.”
The herbarium at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas houses approximately 1.5 million botanic specimens. Recently, BRIT has added to its collection of lichen specimens, not only from Texas, but from other parts of the world as well.
Topics to be discussed include lichen biology, the distribution of lichens in Texas,and projects involving the collection and acquisition of lichen specimens through research at BRIT.
