Dr. Paul Knapp (Geography, Environment, and Sustainability) received new funding from UNC Wilmington for the project “Next Generation Optogenetics for Vision Restoration.”

This research project will investigate fire history at the Nichols Preserve, a rare, old-growth piedmont longleaf pine ecosystem undergoing restoration. Researchers will examine fire scars in remnant longleaf-pine stumps in order to determine the historical fire frequency of this forest. Results from this project will inform management practices for the North Carolina Zoo and will have broader impacts for longleaf pine growing throughout the Piedmont region.
