Disentangling Plumeria Species by Kauahi Perez, PhD
Kauahi Perez is a fellow Plumeria plant enthusiast who has spent the last 7 years analyzing the DNA and physical plant features of many Plumeria plant samples to determine the best way to identify different Plumeria species. Her findings indicate that no single approach (DNA and physical plant features) can be used to identify species, but rather a combined approach using both physical traits and DNA data will provide a more accurate approach to identifying and verifying Plumeria species. Kauahi is currently working to publish her research findings in an open-access journal. In addition to taking care of her nieces and nephews, she works as a USDA SNAP Store Reviewer for the Information Systems Network Corporation, and enjoys gardening.
