Biographical Sketch

Charles Richard Werth received his BA in Biology in 1969 and his MA in Biology in 1978, both from the University of Virginia. In 1983, Werth received his PhD in Botany from Miami University and his dissertation was entitled, "Evolutionary Genetics of the Appalachian Asplenium Complex." His two graduate advisors, W. Hardy Eshbaugh and Sheldon I. Guttman, later co-authored several articles with him. Werth was a prolific writer, penning over 40 articles by 1987 and he had received numerous awards and grants, including a $82,000 National Science Foundation Grant. His areas of study centered around plant systems and evolution. He joined the faculty of Texas Tech University in 1987, serving as a professor in Biological Sciences and curator of the R. L. Reed Herbarium.
