Congratulations to HSU’s Range Plant ID Team

Humboldt State University's Range Plant Identification team placed 5th in a contest that has been described as one of the toughest in recent memory. Deedee Soto, an HSU Botany major with a range minor, placed 5th in the individual category. Coached by lecturer/NRCS Rangeland Specialist Todd Golder, other team members include Mariah Aguiar, Amanda Albright, Melissa Chase, Axel Sanchez, Eric Garcia, Monica Rodriguez, Steven Gilster, Tess Palmer, Darren Pinnegar, and Kaelie Pena. These students were enrolled in RRS 475 Advanced study of Range Plants, offered every semester.

Most plant species on this test were grasses and many consisted of mere fragments of material. We owe much to HSU's excellent range or botany courses, including the Agrostology course (BOT 354) offered alternate years.
