Taxonomy

TAXONOMY

Tropical forests harbour the highest biological diversity on Earth and documenting their plant diversity is an urgent priority. Part of my research involves expeditions to tropical regions to catalog their floritsic composition and to understand the morphological and evolutionary relationships of tropical plant families, including palms (Arecaceae), umbrella trees (Araliaceae), Melastomataceae and tree ferns (Cyatheaceae).
