FNPS Science Advisory Committee Report
April 1, 2008
Paul A. Schmalzer, Ph.D.

There were 27 applications for the 2008 Endowment Grant Research Awards. That was nearly twice the number (14) that we received last year. Applications came from 13 universities, three non-profit organizations, and one private individual. Six states were represented in the applications.

The evaluation process for that many proposals was difficult, but the review committee (Richard Wunderlin, Daphne Lambright, Carl Weekley, and Paul Schmalzer) reached a consensus on the three proposals to recommend to the Board of Directors for funding.

These are:
 
Beyte Barrios Roque
Florida International University
"Fire, flowering, and fragmentation: The effects of seasonal fire on the reproductive biology of pineland allamanda (Angadenia berteroi), a rare shrub of the pine rocklands."
 
Elizabeth L. Stephens
University of Central Florida
"Effects of habitat, microsite and seed density on seed limitation and seedling establishment in native scrubland and scrub undergoing restoration."
 
Tania Wyss
University of Miami
"Do mycorrhizal fungi limit establishment of Pinus elliottii var. densa seedlings?"
 
We will be considering some modifications and clarifications to improve the process for next year.

Insurance for the conference has been finalized.  Thanks to Cammie for all the legwork she did on that.   :-*

Marjorie has finalized her contract per the new FNPS standard contract, so she's on board with us again!   ;D

Re: 2010 conference.  Our board is meeting Monday to discuss venue and other details.  I gave Shirley a long list of thoughts on venue last night.
