Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elsie Quarterman is a prominent plant ecologist. She is a Professor Emerita at Vanderbilt University. Quarterman completed her Ph.D. at Duke University in 1949 with Henry J. Oosting. During her graduate work and afterward, she also collaborated extensively with Catherine Keever. Quarterman is best known for her work on the ecology of Tennessee cedar glades. These herb-dominated plant communities on the shallow soils of limestone outcrops are globally rare habitats and contain many endemic plant species. She is also credited with rediscovering the native Tennessee coneflower, Echinacea tennesseensis, which was thought to be extinct, in 1969. The species is now considered federally endangered.
