Field Botany

This page will highlight herbarium specimens of common plant species used in Western herbalism that I have collected.  It will also have descriptions and photographs of rare botanical specimens that I find while exploring my region.  It will essentially serve as a field journal that includes observations of flowering herb species, descriptions of field excursions and encounters with local, plant authorities.

The goal of this section is to raise public awareness of the amazing diversity of therapeutic plants and highlight some of the challenges in preserving threatened species in the face of increasing public demand.
