Research and professional interests

My primary research interests are in plant evolution and systematics--especially questions concerning the origin of angiosperms and the relationships among major conifer groups. I am also interested in conservation genetics and general molecular evolution. Current projects include the study of an early flowering plant fossil from China and an AFLP survey of American yew, Taxus canadensis (currently listed as state rare in some states, but becoming more rare due to its medicinal attributes).
