Check out these three limited-submission opportunities being coordinated by CTAHR with the UHM Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. All are part of the USDA AFRI Education and Workforce Development Program.
Why and how do plants grow the way they do, and can we change them? This question lies at the heart of Dr. Michael G. Muszynski’s research in CTAHR’s Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences department. Now he’s researching how the shapes of plant leaves can be altered through the plant hormone cytokinin.
Professor Qing Li, who has continually broken new ground in agricultural chemistry since joining CTAHR’s Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering in 1995, was awarded the 2020 UH Board of Regents’ Excellence in Research Award.
The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the Earth’s fastest-warming regions and is experiencing rapid ecological change. Want to know some of the implications of its rapidly melting ice sheet? Attend the latest Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management seminar via Zoom! Dr. David Beilman and MS student Derek Ford will present “From Ice to Plants: Greening Antarctica.”
Congratulations to CTAHR alumnus and former faculty member James Leary and his co-authors! Their scientific paper, “Interpreting Life-History Traits of Miconia through Management over Space and Time in the East Maui Watershed, Hawaii,” recently won the 2019 Outstanding Paper, Invasive Plant Science and Management award from the Weed Science Society of America.
