Higher plant taxonomy and floristics; biodiversity and conservation. My base of botanical experience is European but since coming to TCD I have focussed my research interests on the palaeotropics. I have co-authored/edited a number of books: these include, a revised version of the standard Irish Flora 'An Irish Flora' with David Webb; a new account of the Flora of County Dublin - a project run by the Dublin Naturalists Field Club; a third, with Trevor Hodkinson, is published by the Systematics Association and deals with the problem of Species-rich groups and the Tree of Life; the penultimate, also published by the Systematics Association and with a number of authors from TCD, is on Climate Change and Systematics; finally, the newest edition of the Irish Flora 'Webb's An Irish Flora' is expected to be in bookshops this November. Most of my paleotropical work has concentrated on revisions for the Flora of Thailand; recently published work covers the Lentibulariaceae and Orobanchaceae of that country. I am an editor of the Flora of Thailand and various journals including Nordic Journal of Botany and Thai Forest Bulletin, have brought in ca. €1,650,000 in research funding and published over 150 peer reviewed papers.
