Peter S. White, director of the North Carolina Botanical Garden at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has won the 2014 Star Award from the Center for Plant Conservation.

He received the award on May 8 in recognition for demonstrating concern about conserving native plants.

The award honored White’s work with patch dynamics, which emphasizes that each area of an ecosystem is composed of small “sub-ecosystems,” along with his work on invasive species and preserve design.
