On Monday, April 11, 2016 Blake Thilmony presented her Plant Sciences M.S. thesis, Aminocyclopyrachlor Efficacy on Native Forbs, and Soil Seedbank Change 15 Years Following Release of Leafy Spurge (Euphorbia esula L.) Biological Control Agents. Thilmony studied the effects of a new range herbicide on native prairies and continued a seedbank study to determine the changes in the plant community after releasing flea beetles as biological control agents to control leafy spurge.

After receiving an undergraduate degree in Natural Resources Management and Spanish from North Dakota State University, Thilmony began work on her Master’s Degree in Plant Sciences due to her interest in the seedbank study.

During her graduate studies she was a member of the Plant Sciences Graduate Student Association, Phi Kappa Phi and Gamma Sigma Delta Honor Societies, and Golden Key International Honor Society. She also presented a poster on her research and was awarded first place at the NDSU Ag Week Graduate Student Poster Session on April 12, 2016.

Thilmony’s graduate committee members were Dr. Gary Clambey, Dr. Edward DeKeyser, Dr. Greta Gramig, and Dr. James Hammond. She was advised by Dr. Rodney Lym.
