Biology Student Takes First Place at Tennessee Academy of Science Meeting
Emily Powell’s poster presentation received first place in the Botany section at the recent Tennessee Academy of Science meetings in Nashville on November 18, 2022. Her research was part of a class project with Dr. Peter Li called Environmental Applications of GIS (GEOG 5650). She examined the use of light detection and ranging (lidar) data to explore the relationship of vegetation height and the distribution of the federally endangered plant species Physaria globosa (Short’s bladderpod). All students in Dr. Li’s course attended and presented their projects at the conference.
