Botany student's hard work bags two awards

16 February 2009

A passion for his work and the ability to convey this to audiences has landed UCT student Simon Power two awards at a recent conference.

The master's student in botany won the Hannes van Staden Prize for Best Oral Presentation by a Master's Student, and took third prize in the Best Oral Paper by a Young Scientist category at the annual conference of the South African Association of Botany in Stellenbosch in January.

Power presented a chapter, Does phosphates acquisition constrain legume persistence in the Cape Floristic Region?, from his master's thesis, titled Factors Constraining Legume Persistence.
