2021 Stan Hudson Research Grant Awardees

The Stan Hudson Research Grant Committee is excited to announce two 2021 awardees. The grant honors the late H. Stanton Hudson (1921–2002), a long-time member of the Missouri Native Plant Society whose passion for the flora of Missouri and its conservation inspired his friends and family to create a grant program in his memory.

Abigail Giering, an undergraduate at Missouri State University, received a $500 grant to study competition effects of an exotic duckweed (Landoltia punctata) on native duckweeds (Lemna minor and Spirodela polyrhiza)
Esther Par, an undergraduate student at Missouri Western State University, will use her $1500 grant to help fund a study of relationships in False Foxgloves (Agalinis spp.)
