Jessie Solomon, M.S. Student
Graduate Research Assistant
I am Florida born and grown. I attended the University of Florida for undergrad in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. My research interests focus on invasive plant management practices, specifically on reducing herbicide in the field, while increasing application efficacy and application ease. My current study species are Kalanchoe spp. in beach dune communities, as well as cogongrass (Imperata cylindrica), and torpedograss (Panicum repens). I worked in the Florida Park Service as an AmeriCorps member through Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC), learning firsthand about herbicide application in large scale infestations. I am also helping to improve and completely upgrade the FLCC statewide Annual Herbicide Training.
