The Comanche Peak prairie clover, which is only found in a few counties in this area, is so rare that it is at high risk of extinction. That has drawn the attention of Tarleton State University grad student Seth Hamby, who is doing research on how to save and restore the species, formally known as Dalea reverchonii.
Hamby will discuss his research project at the Jan. 10 meeting of the Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas in Weatherford. The plant is only found on certain limestone soils in North Central Texas. It shares that habitat with other species that have evolved to handle hot, dry conditions and Hamby says such plants “may play an important role in re-vegetating areas affected by a changing climate.”
He was awarded a $2,000 research grant in 2018 for his project from the Native Plant Society.
Hamby grew up in rural South Carolina, where his appreciation of plants first blossomed. He received a bachelor’s degree from Tarleton in wildlife, sustainability and ecosystem sciences and is working on a master’s degree there. While at Tarleton, he created the Bosque River Nature Center and founded the Prairie Oaks Master Naturalist chapter, where a partnership with Tarleton has allowed students to get college credit for master naturalist training, a first in Texas. He plans to pursue a Ph.D. in botany at Oregon State.
The program will be Thursday, Jan. 10, following the chapter’s monthly business meeting at 6:30 p.m. The regular location of the chapter’s monthly meetings has changed. The meetings will now be held at the restored Mount Pleasant School, 213 Raymond George Way in Weatherford. Visitors are always welcome, and light refreshments will be available.
The mission of the Cross Timbers Chapter is to promote the conservation, research, and use of native plants and plant habitats in Texas through education, outreach and example. For more information, visit http://npsot.org/wp/crosstimbers.
