Areas of Specialty
I am primarly interested in the mosses of North and South America, particularly Chile since 2000. I have done taxonomic studies of the families Dicranaceae, Hypnaceae, Plagiotheciaceae and Stereophyllaceae.
In North America my field work has been in both the eastern and western parts of the continent. In South America I have concentrated my studies on the mosses of south-central Chile, especially in the Bio-Bio Region.
