Patrick Alexander Curator

I am originally from Indiana. I started out interested in herps (and still am) but was subverted by botany courses at Indiana University. I then went to New Mexico State University for grad school, working on the taxonomy of Boechera and Thysanocarpus with Donovan Bailey. I held miscellaneous positions (ecology field crew, herbarium curator, adjunct faculty) for a few years and am currently the botanist for BLM in Las Cruces. I have traveled extensively in southern New Mexico and know the plants here well. I have an excel spreadsheet with ca. 65,000 plant observations at ca. 3600 sites and a pile of ca. 12,000 plant photographs. I also have a website (polyploid.net) and a flickr account (flickr.com/aspidoscelis) and have contributed images on SEINet.
