Research Interests

Evolution of extant angiosperm families in the Northern Hemisphere. Multiple-organ paleobotanical investigations providing characters of flowers, fruits, pollen, leaves and wood for inclusion in phylogenetic analyses. Paleocene and Eocene floras of western North America, central Europe and eastern Asia. I have enjoyed collaborative research with paleobotanists in Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Russia, and the United States.
