I am particularly interested in macroevolutionary patterns and characters that diagnose large clades of ferns and lycophytes. My field work is centered in Mexico, Colombia, and Papua New Guinea. I am based in the Pringle Herbarium (VT) at the University of Vermont. If you have any ferns that you want identified, please send them to me!
Happy #FernFriday and the third week of #51WeeksOfPteridophytes! This week is devoted to the quillworts, Isoetaceae. This is the smallest family in the lycophytes, with about 250 species according to PPG I, all in the only extant genus, Isoetes. 1/
