The Arnold Arboretum is pleased to announce that Guang-You Hao was awarded a Putnam Fellowship to conduct independent research utilizing the Arboretum’s living collection. Hao received his Ph.D. from the University of Miami and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010 where his work focused on the hydraulic properties of tropical plants in an ecological context. As Putnam Fellow, Hao will focus on the conifer collection to compare the ecophysiology of evergreen and deciduous conifers, investigating whether differences in growth form and foliage persistence may influence the ability to colonize or adapt to specific environments.

The Katharine H. Putnam Fellowships in Plant Science are made possible by the generosity of George and Nancy Putnam through the Putnam Fellows Fund.
