Student Paper Contest


Student Paper Contest

During the 2020 annual conference in Indianapolis, IN, 4 students presented in the Student Paper (Oral presentation) contest. Each student made a significant contribution to our program though their presentations that highlighted research relative to Aquatic Plant and Algae Management.  MAPMS would like to thank each student for their time and preparation in presenting at our 2020 meeting; and congratulate the winners of the student paper contest:

1st place: Andrew Howell, North Carolina State University. “Estimating Lyngbya wollei Biomass Using Non-destructive Echosounding Measures”.

2nd place: Blake Cahill, Central Michigan University. European Frog-bit (Hydrocharis morus-ranae L.): Collaborative Efforts Towards an Adaptive Management Framework.

3rd place: Jeff Pashnick, Montana State University, “The Eurasian Watermilfoil Genome Sequencing Project: Implications for Identifying Genes Associated with Herbicide Response.”

Congratulations to all the students.  We look forward to learning about the progress of their research and anticipate another outstanding group of students and presentations at the 2021 conference in Grand Rapids, MI. Please help spread the word about opportunities to participate in both the program and poster presentations.
