Yoan Coudert awarded British Bryological Society Bequest Grant

The evolution of branch patterning in mosses.  
Lateral branching systems have undergone 450 million years of independent evolution in flowering plant sporophytes and bryophyte gametophytes, yet the mechanisms underpinning convergent branching morphologies are unknown.
Yoan aims to identify the mechanisms that pattern branching in mosses and determine how patterns changed during moss diversification using computational modelling and morphological character mapping.
Yoan has been awarded a British Bryological Society Bequest Grant to support this work in a new collaboration with Silvia Pressel and Jeff Duckett (NHM).
Congratulations Yoan!
