Kjirsten A. Wayman, Professor

Organic Chemistry, Plant Secondary Compounds, Chemotaxonomy of Plants

Academic Background
Summary of Research

My research interests focus on the use of secondary compounds to study chemotaxonomy and hybridization among related plant species. Currently, this includes analyzing the floral fragrance composition in local Trillium species, and the volatile leaf compounds of Abies concolor and Abies grandis to probe their distribution in the Klamath Mountain region.
