- Congratulations to Peter Houlihan for winning the Lewis and Varina Vaughn Fellowship

Ph.D. student Peter Houlihan was recently awarded the Lewis and Varina Vaughn Fellowship in Orchid Biology from UF. The project is titled: Pollinating Florida’s ghost orchid: Coevolution, ecology, and conservation with an elusive long-tongued hawkmoth pollinator. Peter will be studying the pollination ecology of a rare endemic orchid in south Florida to better inform orchid conservation efforts throughout the tropics. Congratulations, Peter!
