I have had an interest in plants for the last 30 years but my main interest lies in the area of plant phenology. Since 2012, I have been surveying the same area of bush and recording the flowering patterns of over 80 plant species. While it is only a small amount of data at the moment, there are some interesting trends occurring in relation to flowering and the various climate variables. Whether these trends continue as more data is added remains to be seen.

I like it when I can walk into an area of the bush and know the names of the plants, even if it is only to the family or genus level. For me it's like spending time with friends, but if the surf is good, you will find me in the ocean.
