Overview:

Each year, the Davis Botanical Society awards research grants to UC Davis undergraduate and graduate students to carry out:

  • field-oriented botany projects in taxonomy, evolutionary biology, ecology, and/or floristics; or
  • research projects related to the cultivation and propagation of succulents (or horticultural materials of these groups).
As part of the requirement of the funded projects, it is expected that plant voucher specimens and/or population samples will be obtained during the field component of the project and deposited in the UC Davis Center for Plant Diversity herbarium or the UC Davis Conservatory as a return contribution. Grant recipients are invited to contact herbarium staff for information on the proper collection, preparation, and documentation of voucher specimens
