Science Magazine and the NSF honor Kandis Elliot and Mo Fayyaz

They take 1st place in the Visualization Challenge 2010

Congratulations to botany's senior artist, Kandis Elliot and botany's greenhouse and garden director, Mo Fayyaz, for taking first place in the category of informational graphics for their "Introduction to Fungi" poster in the 2010 Visualization Challenge!

The annual contest is co-sponsored by Science magazine and the National Science Foundation to "promote cutting-edge efforts to visualize scientific data, principles, and ideas." This past year the challenge committee received 111 entries form 63 countries. Kandis and Mo's poster was an easy choice, however. As one of the panel judges said, "The fungi poster was a clear winner. That was just amazing." The full story can be read at:

This poster and other beautiful products of Kandis and Mo's collaboration can be ordered at the Botany Outreach Store.
