Research

During the last three years, I have studied the dehydration tolerance of ferns in southern California under the direction of Dr. Steve Davis at Pepperdine University. Our lab has studied various aspects of these ferns. Our study of fern seasonal water relations was recently published in the American Journal of Botany (abstract available here).
