WELCOME to the TRIPP REPORT
Here you can find information about what is happening at the Tea House. For details about funded research, students and researchers, or Ruellia – click on the respective tabs!
Check out the Lichen Biome class this Maymester!
Lichens are biologically diverse hubs of interactions, and The Lichen Biome course will cover numerous dimensions of diversity within this symbiosis (algae, bacteria, fungi, and ecological and evolutionary relationships therein) and beyond it (diversity of lichen symbioses in nature, their ecological functions, and conservation). Through student-led experiments to be initiated and finished during the course, students will develop and apply core skills relating to understanding of the biology and development of lichen symbioses and their roles in the environment.
We wished the hustler of Ruellia bioinformatics, Yongbin Zhuang, good-bye as he returned to China to continue his research at a local university.
Here we all are out at the Rayback Collective to show our appreciation and thanks to YB as he begins this new phase of his career:
Welcome and congratulations Reese Beeler (EBIO), Louise Barton(EBIO), and Sophia Warsh(Museum)! We look forward to their joining the lab/herbarium in the Fall of 2017!
We hosted a few noteworthy students in the Tea House: Ioana (Orobanchaceae evolution), Louise (hummingbird-pollinated plants along altitudinal gradient in the Andes), and our own Reese (Vaccinium polyploidization / hybridization). We hope that you had an excellent visit to the Tea House!
Students & Others: The Tripp Lab is a SAFE SPACE for everyone of all races, genders, sexual orientations, cultures, ages, nationalities, religions, abilities, and political viewpoints. HELP FIGHT DISCRIMINATION – lend an ear and learn to respect what you don’t understand!
I am proud to work with colleagues who similarly advocate for human rights for all! See the following:
Welcome to a research lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder, with broad interests in the evolution of biodiversity on Earth. We specialize in macroevolutionary patterns and underlying processes describing plant and lichen biodiversity, but celebrate all research in biology… the science of life! …And endless forms most beautiful…
