Also feel free to call me globose dune Ivan or fat innkeeper Ivan. I am interested in pretty much everything plant, animal, and algal from mysterious and fascinating chitons to boring everyday raptors. My biggest passion for narrow-range endemics, particularly of California and other Mediterranean climates. My unofficial specialties are Coelus dune beetles, California salamanders, chaparral plants and birds, and intertidal inverts.

I am putting together a photographic book on California endemics, so if you know of any rare species I can photograph, give me a holler.
