Emeritus Curator Kathryn Kalmbach Herbarium

Research Areas
Colorado Flora, especially Poaceae and Cyperaceae
Personal Statement
My work includes building the vascular plant collection of the Kathryn Kalmbach Herbarium by documenting under-collected areas of Colorado, especially the eastern plains. I am particularly interested in the Poaceae and Carex of the Cyperaceae. In 2017 I published a book on the Carices of Colorado, which includes keys, descriptions and illustrations of 116 species of Carex found in Colorado. I am currently revising my Colorado grass book originally published in 1994. The revision will include illustrated keys, descriptions and distribution maps of over 325 species of grasses found in Colorado.
