Great Visit with Brett Scheffers!

Lab alumnus, Dr. Brett Scheffers C'05 stopped by the Herbarium this week and got to meet our Herbarium Fellows, Lillian and Angus. Brett is an assistant professor in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida. His lab focusses on global climate change ecology and conservation. Scheffers lab paper on global climate change impacts was one of the most featured papers in the media for 2016.
