An overview of Matelea hirtelliflora's discovery in Texas and a nice interview of Mark and I are a part of the new issue of the OSU College of Arts and Sciences' magazine. They did a great job highlighting the importance of biodiversity discovery and new species description. It also features a nice photo of the OSU herbarium!

Just before New Year's, Matt Candeias (brains/host/plant geek behind In Defense of Plants) asked me if I would be interested in chatting with him about milkweeds on his show! We chatted for a bit about my career path and how I got involved in milkweed research as well as some of the specifics about my dissertation. Here's the episode that came out in January! I was pretty nervous, but it turned out well (thanks for the good editing, Matt!).
Here's the link to Episode 145, Obscure Apocynaceae Appreciation, which you can download or listen to directly on the site:
