Blurb from my Nature Blog Network description: “Botanical natural history of north Texas. What’s in flower or otherwise interesting with images and commentary.” Please don’t be disappointed if I occasionally notice and photograph a bryophyte (mosses, liverworts and hornworts all of which do not “flower” like our more familiar vascular plants) or a lichen (not a plant at all but the biological combination of an alga and a fungus).
I am a plant taxonomist and overall evolutionary biologist by training and interest.
I am an Assistant Professor of Biology at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX . I regularly teach plant biology and general ecology and am developing courses in field systematic botany and medical botany. I am also the curator of the Hardin-Simmons Herbarium (HSU).
Thanks for visiting!
