|B.S., Plant Biology, UC Davis (2002); M.S., Soils and Biogeochemistry, UC Davis (2005). - - - Bureau of Land Management, Central Coast Field Office (Marina, CA) - Natural Resources Specialist (Botany/Soils/Paleontology). 2007 to Present. I conduct Special Status Species monitoring and survey and Federally listed plant species recovery. My broad areas of expertise are serpentine ecology (all of CA) and plant ecology of the central Inner South Coast Ranges and San Joaquin Desert (Valley). I am particularly interested in annual plant species ecology and adaptation to extreme environmental conditions (chemically extreme soils, deserts, etc.) I botanize all over California, but focus mostly on the Central and Northern portions. I am expert in the identification and ecology of Camissonia, Layia, Deinandra, Streptanthus, Caulanthus, Gilia and numerous other annuals.|
