Summary. I am the British plant specialist with a strong interest in conservation, particularly of cryptogamic plants. Responsible for dealing with plant identification enquiries within the IAS team, I also provide expert taxonomic advice to various Taxon Groups, sit on IUCN specialist groups and am referee for several families for the BSBI.
