Graduate Student Theses


In my retirement I am continuing my research interests in the systematics, ecology and phytogeography of the lichen-forming fungi and other cryptogamic plants. My research in lichen taxonomy utilizes traditional morphological approaches as well as data from TLC chemical analyses. I maintain a lichen herbarium of approximately 19,000 identified specimens cataloged on computer databases.

My current research efforts revolve around treatments of the genera Pseudevernia, Punctelia, Flavopunctelia, Everniastrum and Parmotrema species in Mexico.
