Social isolation was always the rule out here in Mohave County, AZ, and life has changed little under the pandemic: still writing about the plants of Nevada, Stellaria, grant proposals, and reviewing papers as if the world’s restrictions passed this place by. And as always, the next botanical expedition is continuously being planned: the AZ and NV borders critical to such expeditions remain open.

The plant photos were becoming too much for one landmass (Earth), so I’ve subdivided them by continent, and in some cases, state/province. I have given Caryophyllaceae pictures their own section under “Botany” rather than speckling them throughout the geography-based plant photo sections. Research sections have been updated. A new header “Flora of Nevada” has been added–check it out someday soon! I’m also cooking up a new opinion piece about human evolution to be placed one day under “Opinions”.
