I'm a botanist with most of my experience in Pennsylvania, but currently living in Hawai'i while I work towards my PhD in Botany. I have general knowledge of most plant diversity and a specific interest in grasses and sedges. Feel free to tag me to ask for any sort of ID. Also, if I disagreed with you on an ID, just tag me and ask why,
