Welcome! We are a team of individuals fascinated by plants and willing to contribute to plant science from Augustana College, an undergraduate liberal arts institution. The evolutionary role of genome duplication in mosses, the diversity of bryophytes of the Midwest, and the curation and enhancement of the herbarium are among our current interests. This site will give you a better idea of what we do. If you are a student of the college and are looking for research opportunities, feel free to contact us.
