Plant Ecology

Lisa Giencke

The Plant Ecology lab, through funding from the Southeastern Grasslands Institute, has collected seeds from Conecuh National Forest in southern Alabama and Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southeast Georgia. These collections are part of Seeds of Success, a nationwide native seed collection program. The long-term goal of the Seeds of Success program is to support native plant materials development programs and increase the quantity of native seed available for restoration. Two more seeds collections are planned for 2023.
