The Australian Taxonomy
I am a PhD student at the University of New England studying the systematics of Melichrus R.Br. (Ericaceae). I combine analyses of morphology, anatomy and genetics to examine patterns of speciation and produce robust, descriptive and usable taxonomic classifications. My aim is to contribute to the description, appreciation and conservation of natural diversity.
