Current Research Interests:

Distribution, host range and systematics of dwarf mistletoes in Central America and Mexico.

In 1998 and 1999 I have been working on the dwarf mistletoes parasitizing various species of pines in Central America and Mexico.  Here's a picture of  Arceuthobium hondurense from Honduras.  This is a male plant with flowers.
