I like to call myself a botanist but I get a kick out of any living thing. Fields of study I am most interested in are:

  • Trends in plant (and plant-like organism) evolution and ecology, both in the present and over geologic time.
  • Island flora and adaptive radiation, especially of islands in the Pacific.
  • Flora of Western North America and East Asia.
  • Plant biogeography in the present and past, especially of relict genera and species.
  • Cryptogamic flora and lichens.
  • Crop evolution and crop wild ancestors.
  • Alpine flora.
    Taxa I am most interested in are conifers, pteridophytes, sedges, bryophytes, marine algaes and lichens. I also love cetaceans, caniforms, insects, and marine invertebrates.
    Specific regions I am familiar with are Pacific northwest and California coast ranges, Sierra Nevada, Rocky Mountains, and California central valley. Also fond of the sea!
    I love meeting other people in the botany, mycology or adjacent communities, so feel free to message me if you are nearby!

If I get any identifications wrong, please feel free to correct them. Sometimes locations for some of my older observations may be slightly inaccurate, as my proper camera does not have GPS capabilities, or my phone fails to capture the precise location, and I have had to upload the locations manually.
