(December 1952 – )
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU) has cataloged about 450 vascular plant specimens collected by Timothy D. Nifong. As we continue to catalog our collections more specimens collected by Nifong will be found.
Timothy David Nifong, son of Jennifer Smith Nifong and Julius Lee Nifong, earned a B. S. from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1975. He earned a J.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1986, then returned to complete his Ph.D. from that institution in 1998.1 The title of his doctoral thesis was “An ecosystematic analysis of Carolina Bays in the coastal plain of the Carolinas”.
After completing his doctoral degree, Nifong returned to his practice of law.
