Sewanee students publish an article about redbay survival on St. Catherines Island

Elise Landreaux (C'15, Natural Resources) and Hali Steinmann (C'15, Biology) have just published a second paper based on their research on St. Catherines Island. The paper, entitled "Redbay survival eleven years after infection with an exotic disease on St. Catherines Island, Georgia", was published in the Canadian online journal Environment and Natural Resources Research. This paper was the second of two articles that Landreaux and Steinmann published while at Sewanee, and follows previous work on the island by other Island Ecology graduates. Landreaux and Steinmann worked with professors Ken Smith (Earth and Environmental Systems), Deborah McGrath (Biology) and Royce and Christa Hayes of the St. Catherines Island Foundation on the project. The online version of the paper can be found here. Both Landreaux and Steinmann have worked with various organizations involved with reforestation and watershed restoration since leaving Sewanee and both plan to pursue graduate school in the near future.
