Plant Systematics

Our research is in higher plant systematics, especially plant taxonomy, biogeography and floristics. In a context of rapidly increasing biodiversity loss across the globe, the study of the variation among plants and the ability to accurately and reliably identify plant species is of particular importance. By providing a better understanding of plant diversity, we inform conservation efforts and provide a baseline for research in the realms of ecology, biogeography, adaptation to climate change and agriculture, to name but a few. Our work using molecular and morphological datasets is concentrated in mainland SE Asia, especially Thailand.
