Memberships

Associate Editor, Australian Systematic Botany

Teaching Areas

I teach flowering plant morphology and taxonomy, evolution, and systematics in the following units:

BIOL120 Biology II
BOTY203/503 Plant Diversity
BOTY390 Field Botany
EVOL211/311 Evolution and Biogeography
EVOL301/501 Biological Systematics: this unit is part of UNE's BSc (Biosystematics) program and is taught by staff from the Australian Museum, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney and UNE.

Research Interests

My main research interests are in the biology, ecology and systematics of Cyperaceae. I am part of the international network of researchers working on the Cyperaceae. My contributions to the Flora of North America (see below) were published in Volume 23 (2002).

I also have been and am involved in studies on a wide range of Australian plant groups (including ferns, wattles, Myrtaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Phyllanthaceae, Juncaceae, etc.)

Specific research projects currently in progress

  • Floral development in Cyperaceae: What is a Flower?
  • Sedge Genera of the World
  • Photosynthetic pathway variation in Cyperaceae
  • Species and other taxonomic limits in the Cyperaceae.
  • Phylogeny of Cyperaceae. Current work is particularly focussed on Schoeneae
  • Flora of Australia treatments of some sedges and 'spurges'
