I am a systematist specializing in petaloid monocots in the Greater Cape Floristic Region, South Africa. My research interests are in Amaryllis, Brunsvigia, Hessea, Strumaria, Namaquanula, Haemanthus and Cyrtanthus (family Amaryllidaceae), as well as Pauridia and Empodium in the family Hypoxidaceae.
The woodcut of Haemanthus by Justus Heurnius, shown in my profile, is based on sketches made at the Cape in 1624. It acknowledges the many pioneer observers of Cape plants. Long may this activity last.
