I am a Botanist at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in the Americas Team of the Identification & Naming Department. My work centres on the documentation and conservation of biological diversity with a focus on Latin America and the nettle family (Urticaceae). I have been fascinated by tropical forests since watching the jungle book as a kid and have spent the last 20 years working in forests. This has generated a strong respect for the local people who live in and around forests and act as their stewards. This blog documents my work and the research initiatives that I contribute to.

  2. Hi Alex,
    Just read your article on Ascension (from 2014). I am and artist working on man’s influence on the landscape and I am preparing a work on ascension at the moment.
    I am doing a residency in Portugal at the moment focusing on the links between Banks’Endeavour voyage and the introduction of the Eucalyptus tree in Europe.
    I would love to chat more about this different topics with you if you are interested.
