Somer Rowe, a plant biology undergraduate, is spending part of this summer at Cornell University working with top chemical ecologists, Drs. Andre Kessler and Rob Raguso analyzing her Sarracenia leucophylla volatile samples. This great experience was funded by her PBIO 4960 Undergraduate Research Award. Somer's project, under the advisement of graduate student Jess Stephens, is looking at volatile differences between flowers and traps of S. leucophylla. In addition, she is examining whether this moth specialist emits compounds from it's traps at night and how decomposing prey may influence volatile compounds. Way to go Somer!
