Peter Jobson

I currently curate the Alice Springs Herbarium, the only arid specialist herbarium. Additionally to curation, I also identify plants, am involved in weed and Threatened Species information, and community outreach programmes. My interests are in arid Australian flora, phytobiogeography of arid Australia and the Australian Monsoon Tropics (AMT), Australian botanical history, and on the phylogeny of Dillwynia and associated species (Fabaceae: Faboideae: Mirbelieae).
