Her influence can also be seen in the number of botanists Beats By Dre Solo 3 who followed in her footsteps.

She spent time identifying for the federal government locations that should be set aside for conservation, Baskin said.
"She was one of the first female ecologists that we had in America," said Kim C. Sadler, a professor in Middle Tennessee State University's biology department.
Much of her career was focused on understanding the ecology of cedar glades areas globally unique to Middle Tennessee that feature shallow soil and limestone outcroppings.
The sites are home to groves of gnarled cedar trees and drought and heat resistant plants such as Babyliss Curling Tongs
prairie clover and the coneflowers.

The forest area isn't the only thing that bears her name. In 2008, an annual cedar glade wildflower festival that takes place at a state park in Lebanon was renamed the Elsie Quarterman Cedar Glade Wildflower Festival in her honor.
Focus on cedar glades
Dr. Quarterman's work with the Tennessee coneflower began in 1969 when she and a student were said to have noticed the plant while driving. At the time, the flower that had been endemic to cedar glades in Middle Tennessee was thought to be extinct.
"I think that was the major turning point," Baskin said.

"I felt like when I met her when she was 96, she might have been 36," Sadler said. "She was just such an amazing person, that she kept her vitality."
Elsie Quarterman, a Nashville botanist whose decades long efforts to re establish an obscure pink wildflower unique to Tennessee brought the species back from the brink of extinction, died on Monday. She was 103.
Jerry Baskin, who spent 43 years as a botany professor at the University of Kentucky, studied under Dr. Quarterman as a graduate student at Vanderbilt in the 1960s. Her influence is what in part led him to the research field.
