  • Congratulations to Kris: Stanley Greene awardee
    I am delighted to share the news that Kris Anderson was awarded the Stanley Greene Award from the International Association of Bryologists in support of her project entitled “Experimentally testing the fundamental assumption that shifts in ploidy facilitate shifts in sexuality in a dioicous moss.” Congratulations. Looking forward to the outcome. Good luck.
