Congrats to ENVT junior, Shannon Hester, on her first scientific publication!

Dr. Aimée  K. Thomas and Shannon Hester (ENVT '19) just published a paper in Southeastern Naturalist in collaboration with California Academy of Sciences scientist, Dr. Sarah Crews, on a species of spider never documented in Louisiana.  This natural history paper includes the molecular analyses that indicate the spider represents a distinct population. It is available online now and in print next month.
