Experimental sunflower plot at the UHCC. Photo credit: Ken WhitneyDr. Ken Whitney from the University of New Mexico is studying sunflower evolution using plots at the UHCC. The plots are part of a larger network of sites that span central Texas. The experiment, established in 2008, asks whether genetic exchange via hybridization can accelerate evolutionary processes. Funding from NSF was recently extended through 2018.
