Early December, Ray and I met my parents, Bob and Betty, Matthew and his Gramma Virginia at CSUF as we were invited to attend her public defense for her Master's Degree. Rebecca has been studying the effects of disturbance of Biological Soil Crusts on the germination of exotic plants in Coastal Sage Scrub for the past 3 years. The public presentation portion was Rebecca providing a 35 minute talk on her thesis research. This was followed by a private 3 hour defense with her committee members which was made up of the professors in the Biology Department at CSUF. She is currently working to have her thesis published. She was also awared the CSU Pre-doctoral Fellowship.
Rebecca your family is so proud of you!
