Boyd collaborates with University of Florida

LORMAN — Gwendolyn D.L. Boyd, associate professor of forestry in the Department of Agriculture at Alcorn State University, has been appointed a member of an 11-state team headed by the University of Florida to study climate change in loblolly pine forests in the southeastern region of the United States.

The $76,000 grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture to fund research, outreach and education to develop and transfer better management methods for southern pine, notably loblolly pine.

As chair of the 1890’s Agroforestry Consortium, Boyd will serve in the leadership capacity of getting the 1890 land-grant community to generate underserved and nontraditional landowners who can benefit from this project.

This project will provide information that will contribute to knowledge of the underserved and nontraditional landowners about how climate changes affect agriculture.
