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!
Some ferns of Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park in Florida, part of the Big Cypress Preserve. Florida is home to over 160 species of ferns, more than any other US state. Photos by @ebsessa - photo below is an archway of Pleopeltis
A great day doing a comprehensive Asplenium septentrionale count together with @NatResWales staff. Some positive site actions have already been done, and a good discussion on a management plan to look after this very special site. @FernBPS @fossilplants #FernFriday @cofnod
