Pelargonium cericifolium
Pelargonium cericifolium

I am PhD candidate in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at the University of Connecticut. My interests broadly involve structure-function relationships in plants. My dissertation focuses on petioles in plants of the genus Pelargonium (L’Her; Geraniaceae). I’m working to understand petiole structure and how that might affect their ability to move water and sugar to and from the leaf blade.
