Donald E. Stone, Professor Emeritus of Biology (deceased 2011)

Donald E. Stone

My research over the years has focused on the taxonomy, biosystematics and evolution of temperate and tropical plants, with emphasis on the walnut family, Juglandaceae, and select members of the monocot order Zingiberales. Morphology/ anatomy, cytotaxonomy and pollination biology have been fundamental to these studies, as has been the study of pollen-wall ontogeny employing SEM and TEM to assess evolutionary relationships.
