Seth Raynor

Seth is a current Master’s student in the Museum and Field Studies program and a graduate assistant in the COLO Herbarium. Before moving to Colorado, he earned two Bachelor degrees in Plant Biology and Environmental Science with a minor in Applied Ecology from North Carolina State University. His undergraduate research took him to the Cerrado of Brazil where he studied above-ground carbon allocation in resprouting plants of different growth forms to determine if fire-defense strategies affect competitiveness in a fire suppressed system. After graduating Seth moved to Florida where he studied regional plant and lichen diversity, fire ecology, and rare plant demography as an ecological contractor. He is currently interested in Colorado lichen diversity and tackling the taxonomic discrepancies in the region. In his free time, Seth loves being in the backcountry looking for rocks to climb and natural experiences to encounter
