Name a new species by making a $3000 tax-deductible donation!

Hey, everyone!

First, I want to thank several of you out there for the noble contributions you’ve already made. I encourage you to keep the momentum up and share with a friend so we can Fund the Sciences! It is all C. lanceolata at this point, but we can make some changes…

I am so passionate about conserving rare plants that I wanted to announce to you that I have made the offer for donors to name a new species by making a $3000 tax-deductible donation to this project! I will be describing as new to the scientific community a few rare species of Claytonia (and new species in other genera in North America) as part of my dissertation research. Not only will you receive the super sweet reward of a color reprint for tax-deductible donations, but donate $3000 or more to my Research Fund at RSABG and I will name a new plant species in your honor (or take suggestions)l. With all of your help we can get this research project off the ground!

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:

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!
