Congratulations to Ursina Studer for passing her MSc exam!
Ursina's master's thesis investigated the pollen and ovule porduction of several herbacious species along an elevational gradient. From the manual counts of both traits she concluded that they are more conservative than expected, and that neither elevation nor inflorescence morphology impacts their production. With this work Ursina also contributed a new method to estimate pollen production based on simple measurements. Ursina also adds that she is very thankful for the instructive and interessting time as a member of the PPE group and thanks everyone for their support during this time.
