A new collaboration between Garden scientists and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is hoping to expand the range of a species once extinct in Illinois. Garden scientists, students, and collaborators are conducting research to guide recovery of the federally threatened lakeside daisy (Tetraneuris herbacea). Plant Biology and Conservation Ph.D. student Rafael Urbina Casanova is working with Garden scientists Drs. Jeremie Fant and Andrea Kramer, and collaborators Jenny Finfera and Cathy Pollack at the U.S.
Negaunee Institute faculty, staff and collaborators publish papers describing their research in national and international scientific journals. They also publish technical reports and other products depending on the nature of the work. Our research and conservation work is promoted through news stories, blog posts, and other contributions that seek to explain the importance and impact of our work.
