Description of Research Interests
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. Ä1,650,000 in research funding and published over 150 peer reviewed papers.

Research Projects
Project title The genetic relationships, phylogeny and conspecificity of Irish E. aquaticum populations with those from Scotland and North America.
Summary This project aims to determine whether Irish, British and American material of Eriocaulon aquaticum (Hill) Druce (Pipewort) are con-specific, to compare the genetic structure of Irish, British and American populations and to detail the reproductive biology of Irish material. Based on previous work undertaken by the proposerís research group on the Eriocaulaceae, molecular, morphological, cytological and anatomical techniques will be used to gather data which will then be analysed using phenetic (ordination, discriminant and possibly co-inertia analyses) and phylogenetic (maximum parsimony and likelihood) techniques and population genetic (diversity and differentiation) to determine the answers to the above questions.

Project title The genetic relationships, phylogeny and conspecificity of Irish Daboecia cantabrica populations with those from Europe..
Summary This proposal aims to determine whether Irish material is most closely related to material in France or Northern Spain or Portugal. It also aims to compare the genetic structure of Irish, Spanish and Portugese populations and to detail the reproductive biology, population size and reproductive biology of Irish material.
