Ecologist based in Christchurch.

Am interested in everything ecological, but main interests are native plants, invasive weeds, and community ecology. I love the wet, wild West Coast bush, the fascinating dry grasslands of lowland Canterbury, and ephemeral wetlands with their suite of tiny specialist plants. I also love ferns, and have a soft spot for carabid beetles (my MSc thesis topic).

Am keen to improve my knowledge of lichens, mosses, and fungi, so will be posting lots of observations of them on NatureWatch.
