Evolution of Promiscuity in Angiosperms: Microryza Project

2013-06-23 17.53.12Hey all ya’ll! I am floating my research project on a crowd-sourced ‘kickstarter’ website in hopes to raise $20K for my research and I need your help to get the word out to everyone (feel free to RE-POST this message). I am posting to let you know that you have the opportunity to contribute any amount of funding to my research on rare, predominantly alpine plants and the effects of climate change on the montane flora of California and more broadly throughout North America. No donation will be charged unless I reach my goal, and all donations are tax-deductible!

My project page can be found here, and will be made publicly available next week for exactly 30 days of fundraising:

Evolution of Promiscuity in Angiosperms

I’d be happy to provide more information for anyone, and obviously would acknowledge all contributions large and small on my website and in publications. Thanks at least for listening!

I need your help to get the word out to EVERYONE so please RE-POST, Re-Tweet, Instagram, Facebook it, whatever you can do to help!

    • Hey Michael! I can’t say enough how much I appreciate your kind efforts. Thank you.

      I’ll have to get in touch with Microryza, you are supposed to be able to donate at this point (although others have been able to already, I’m told that they also received this message originally). Certainly everyone should be able to contribute on Monday (9/16) when we ‘officially’ launch for 30 days of fundraising. In the mean time, keep posted here (or at Microryza) for updates on the fundraising effort! Thanks again for rallying behind my research 😉
