Zane Moore is a Plant Biology PhD student at the University of California at Davis. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Botany at Colorado State University this spring. He is interested in understanding somatic mutations in plants and plans for this to be his research area at Davis. In Colorado, he studied chlorophyll-deficient plants: specifically their morphology, physiology, and evolution with his mentor, Dr. Dave Steingraeber. Zane is a California State Parks docent and researcher at Big Basin Redwoods State Park and commonly gives talks at both Big Basin and Henry Cowell. Zane also has an interest in tall trees and consistently works to find taller trees. One of his significant discoveries includes the tallest tree on earth south of San Francisco: a 100-meter tree in Big Basin. Tom Stapleton and Zane have been collaborating on albino redwood research since January 2013, since then making significant findings in understanding albino redwood distribution and morphology.
