Monday, May 22, 7:00pm Chapter Meeting: “Remarkable Pollination Biology of Flame Azalea and the Natural History of the Insects that Visit Its Flowers.” Mary Jane Epps is an assistant professor of biology at Mary Baldwin University, where she teaches both botany and conservation biology. Following a bachelor’s degree at Duke University she earned her Ph. D. at the University of Arizona in 2012. As an ecologist with a strong emphasis on natural history, her research investigates a wide range of interactions between plants, fungi, and insects. In addition to studying the pollination of native azaleas some of her current projects explore the ecological effects of invasive species and how fungal-insect interactions respond to climate change.
