Exploring the alpine flora of the Sawtooth mountains in central Idaho was a major inspiration for me to pursue a career in science. It was a dream to be able to sample plants across nine summits in the wilderness area, and start to understand the diversity on these remote mountain summits I am so happy to see this finally published in the American Journal of Botany :
Marx HE, Richards M, Johnson GM & Tank DC. 2019. Increasing phylogenetic stochasticity at high elevations on summits across a remote North American wilderness. American Journal of Botany.106(7): 958-970. DOI: https:10.1002/ajb2.1328
Over the summer I moved from the Sonoran desert to begin a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan. I’m really excited to begin working with Stephen Smith and Chris Dick on Alpine adaptations and geo-genomics. More soon!
