Congratulations to our very own Huda Khan, who presented on our Texas Sea Grant Restoration Project at the Houston Premedical Academy Symposium! As we began to gear up for the new semester, Huda was able to put an amazing presentation together and present on the impacts that microbes have on dune restoration efforts. She stood out at the medical school as the only student presenting an ecology project. We went to our project site at the University of Houston Coastal Center and did preliminary data collection to see what impacts microbes have had since our planting in August. So far the results are looking interesting, and we will begin to do more intensive data collecting once the plants begin to grow again in the spring, so stay tuned!
