Title: Professor Emeritus of Biology (taught 1968-2014)
Knox College, BA in Biology
Miami University, MA in Botany
University of Illinois, PhD in Botany
My interests include: plant anatomy and development; root apical meristems; structural adaptations of plants to wetland habitats, esp., invasive vs. native plants; treesand shrubs of Oswego. Plants I continue to study include, but are not limited to: water lilies of the world, Gunnera of the southern hemisphere, grasses of the Yangtze River floodplain, and the living fossil Ginkgo. I work with colleagues in the Czech Republic, China, Canada, Brazil, SUNY ESF, and SUNY Oswego and with former students on the department's Zeiss laser confocal microscope and Zeiss Stemi2000 dissecting scope.
