Save the Redwoods League Awards Nearly $100,000 for Research | Save the Redwoods League

Chris Brinegar, professor, University of Maine, Farmington, received $14,266 for studying the genetic drift in understory plants of the redwood forest.
Brinegar believes that western sword ferns and redwood sorrel suffer loss of genetic diversity in the southern part of the redwood range (south of San Francisco Bay), like the redwoods in that area.

UMF faculty member Chris Brinegar awarded distinguished Fulbright Fellowship
FARMINGTON - Chris Brinegar, adjunct associate professor in the UMF Division of Natural Sciences, has recently been awarded a Fulbright teaching/research fellowship by the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board for a one-year stay in Loja, Ecuador, beginning this June. He will be a visiting professor in the natural sciences department at the Technical University of Loja, a small Catholic university in the Andes Mountains of southern Ecuador, where he will teach conservation genetics. Brinegar's research specialty is in plant phylogeography, which is the study of the geographic distribution of genetic lineages in plant populations. Phylogeographic data can shed light on plant species evolution and is also used to assess biodiversity and to identify populations in need of conservation. While in Ecuador, he will conduct research on the population genetics of two threatened tree species: cinchona and nogal. The cinchona tree was harvested to near extinction in Ecuador for the quinine in its bark prior to the discovery of synthetic anti-malarial drugs. It currently exists in scattered remnant populations. Nogal (Andean walnut) is on the endangered species list due to overharvesting for its prized hardwood. Brinegar has taught ecology, environmental science and biochemistry at UMF since 2006. This is his second Fulbright fellowship. In 2008, he spent a semester as a visiting professor at Kathmandu University in Nepal. In 2012, he was awarded a grant by the Save the Redwoods League to help expand scientific knowledge of the biology and ecology of coast redwood forests.
