Grand Teton National Park Report
Flavonoid compounds in flowers serve two presently known functions: (1) they act as floral pigments which attract pollinators and (2) they function as a screen for potentially damaging ultraviolet (UV) wavelength radiation. The research I performed at the Research Center reeks to evaluate the relative importance of these two functions between alpine and Jackson Lake-level elevations in Grand Teton National Park.
