Lenny Kouwenberg

Associate specialist
Lenny's main interest is how plants respond morphologically and physiologically to environmental stress and how this response can be quantified to use as proxies for paleoenvironment when measured on plant fossils. She is currently mainly working on paleobotanical proxies for paleoelevation (specifically for the Western U.S.A.). She is also the Lab Manager. >>

Kelsey Maher

Former Honors Thesis Undergraduate

Kelsey was an undergraduate student who worked on her honors thesis within the project "Light induced changes in leaf and epidermal cell morphology in trees". She studied the effects of light availability on vein density and leaf morphology. She was busy measuring, bleaching, and making microscopic slides of leaves of Quercus kelloggii, Q. robur, Q. chrysolepis and Platanus occidentalis. Kelsey graduated with a B.A. in Integrative Biology in Spring 2011.
