Graduate student Monique McHenry.

The focus of Monique McHenry's work in the Barrington Lab was on a monophyletic clade within the genus Polystichum that is rich in endemic species from the northern and central Andes. She used a traditional systematic approach integrating fieldwork, morphological and molecular data, and phylogenetic analyses to unravel the evolutionary history of Polystichum in the Andes.
