2022 Blatchley Nature Study Club Scholar: Rich Hull

Richard “Rich” Hull is a second-year Ph.D. student in Senior Scientist Eric Knox’s lab, where he studies distributional patterns of vascular plants in Indiana. Specifically, this award will support Rich’s 2022 summer fieldwork along the Wabash River corridor, which is part of a larger three-year field effort to document the modern flora of this region. Beyond research, he is an active member of the Indiana Academy of Science, a volunteer for the Indiana Plant Conservation Alliance, and a naturalist with a passion for sharing his knowledge of the natural world with others.
