I am a botanist. My specialty is being a generalist with an interest in the global flora, focusing particularly on plant family ID features. I have lived in many states in the US and worked at several different botanical gardens, universities, and herbaria, including FLAS, MO, & NY. I only learn by being wrong & asking questions, so I'm usually willing to throw out my best guess (based on whatever evidence is at hand), even if it turns out to be way off... I look forward to living vicariously through y'alls photos of plants!
