Alan Griffith, Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences, will publish his research article titled “Secondary Dispersal in Aeschynomene virginica: Do Floating Seeds Really Find a New Home?” His article will appear in the Natural Areas Journal in October 2014. Published by the Natural Areas Association, this journal disseminates cutting-edge research, best practices and the newest knowledge related to natural areas. Dr. Griffith’s article describes and explains the appearance of the rare plant Aeschynomene virginica on the site of a recently removed dam in New Kent County, Virginia. This information is part of his ongoing research to understand how to protect this rare plant of Virginia’s freshwater, tidal wetlands.
