I am a botanist/taxonomist specializing in the genus Passiflora and currently about to finish the renewed monograph on the genus Passiflora describing all 626 species of Passionflowers currently known worldwide. Within this genus, I mainly focus on the distribution, conservation and taxonomy of the native species opposed to hybrids and cultivars. Using my Geology background combined with decades of experience in botanical fieldwork and collecting, I calculate biodistribution and the conservation potential for many species of Passiflora, taking into account all the ecological dynamics that allows the existence of these highly specialized species in their respective habitats.

I am always open for collaboration, conferencing or advice, and please don't hesitate sending me an email for any identification or question on Passifloras.
