I have been interested in fungi since the camping trips of my childhood.
After attending University, my interest peaked,
and I purchased a pair of microscopes.
My bryological, mycological, and lichenological collections now contain
over 15,000 specimens and I have sent specimens and photographs to herbaria all over the
world. I have and will continue to dedicate my life’s work to the study of nonvascular plants.
I Recently finished my Masters degree in Biology in the McCutcheon Lab at the University of Montana.
• The Lichen Mycota of Chile, Alaska and Montana
• Field guide to the Macrofungi of Montana
• The phylogeny and taxonomy of the lichen family Megasporaceae
I live in Arlee, Montana.
