This course was designed as an introduction to Biology and Plant Biology students to the kinds of research done by plant biologists. I do not claim to know much about wetland biology except for a passing knowledge of some of the plants typical of several types of wetlands. So the course is also one of several ways to challenge me during the last decade of my career and keep me interested and, hopefully, interesting to my students and other colleagues.

I have enjoyed working with the students and look forward to many more semesters in the muck and in the lab. There are always new plants to discover and old friends to learn more about.

I have taught a wide variety of courses, usually with a co-instructor: many years of CBIO(BIOL) 3300 Developmental Biology (several with Ann Sluder), somewhat fewer years of Plant Molecular Biology (Susan Wessler, Gary Kochert, Gregory Schmidt), PBIO(BIOL) 3600 Plant Cell and Molecular Biology (Gregory Schimdt), PBIO 8111 Plant Developmental Biology (Russell Malmberg, Mike Scanlon), PBIO(BIOL) 1210 Principals of Plant Biology (Michael Hahn), and PBIO 4650/6650 Plant Taxonomy (Wendy Zomlefer, Jim Leebens-Mack) and several offerings of Plant Physiology, Seed Physiology (Nick Hill) and seminar courses. Subjects for First Year Seminars have included: Good Science Gone Bad; Genetically-modified Foods; The Challenger Accident Investigation Board Report; The 9-11 Commission Report; and Unusual Plant Communities.

The lab's research is described on my professional page. Other interests include SparkleberrySprings.com LLC, a seed company, and watershed issues discussed at GouldingCreek.net. I also serve in the Wolfskin Volunteer Fire Department.
