Botanist at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida, USA, an institution specializing in the study, display, and conservation of vascular plant epiphytes, and their natural habitats. Our emphasis is on the American tropics and subtropics. My particular interest is in the understanding of plant diversity and distribution, and the conservation of species in habitat. For a variety of reasons I have specialized on the Bromeliaceae and Myrtaceae families, but in Florida, and elsewhere, I love asters, orchids, pteridophytes, Hypericum, Polygala, Quercus, Smilax, and many other groups.
