APSU students published in academic journal

APSU logo

The July edition of the international journal Tree-Ring Research included an article co-authored by two members of the Austin Peay State University community.

Megan Hart, an APSU undergraduate biology major and member of the President’s Emerging Leaders Program, and Rob Shepard, a recent APSU graduate now pursuing a graduate degree at the University of Arizona, co-authored the article, “Signal strength in sub-annual tree-ring chronologies from Pinus ponderosa in northern New Mexico.”

“This is a great accomplishment and illustrates the type of top-notch students we are producing at Austin Peay,” said Dr. Christopher Gentry, director of the APSU Office of Undergraduate Research.

Tree-Ring Research is the peer-reviewed journal for the international Tree-Ring Society. The journal has been published since 1934 as a principal outlet for tree-ring studies.

Hart and Shepard’s article was published in Volume 69, no. 2, of that journal. For more information, contact Gentry at gentryc@apsu.edu.
