Megan Marchica, Master’s student – AY 2021/22

Project in development

Plants are AWESOME – and Meg wants everyone to know that! Whereas efforts to conserve charismatic animals are easy to market to the public, plants often get overlooked – sometimes people may not even think of them as living things. Not only are plants alive, but also they ARE the habitat for all terrestrial animals and are vital to humans too. In her graduate studies, Meg hopes to learn more about how plants interact with and shape the environment in which all other organisms live.
