Kenneth Is a student at Northwestern , studying Mathematics/Environmental Science , and is expecting to graduate in 2018 .

About Me:
Performing a germination study on lespedeza leptostachya and lespedeza capitata to see how germination rates vary across temperatures and using this data to project current lespedeza populations in possible future climate conditions.

My Projects
Demographic consequences of seed germination patterns in Lespedeza leptostachya (2015)

Temperature and precipitation patterns are predicted to affect the early growth rates of temperate grassland species such as Prairie Bush Clover, particularly germination responses that are critical to maintaining viable populations. Preliminary population projection models of PBC suggest that both of these factors have strong effects on the population growth rate of this species. The student
