Organisation or Individual Expertise:
My research is in higher plant systematics, especially plant taxonomy, biogeography and floristics. My research group is the only one in the State working on these topics and one of very few working on tropical plant systematics worldwide. Most of our tropical work is associated with the Flora of Thailand project. Thailand has proven to be singularly rich in plant life with many species new to science waiting to be found. We have studied a number of plant families in detail including the Apocynaceae, Araliaceae, Buxaceae, Clusiaceae, Hypericaceae, Lamiaceae, Lentibulariaceae, Myrtaceae, Orobanhcaceae, Polygalaceae and Vitaceae. Recently, we have begun work outside of Thailand in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and Nepal. I combine my systematics research with being curator of the internationally important TCD herbarium and associated library; an unique, valuable and important component of the State’s heritage.
