Hello internet! I'm a plant nerd with designs on grad school and one year left on my BSc in evolutionary biology. My plan is to write on various topics of interest to me in plant biology, with a focus on my areas of specialty: systematics and comparative development. The goal is to improve my science writing and natural history chops, hopefully while being slightly interesting.
I should post a real article within a few days. Stay tuned!
(My title, by the way, is cribbed from this excellent, if outdated, book by E.J.H. Corner.)
I am a Greek surgeon and botanist whose five-volume magnum opus De Materia Medica is one of the earliest published pharmacopeias, as well as an important early work in plant taxonomy.
These days I study plant biology, systematics and evolutionary biology at the University of Alberta.
