I have a long history with legumes. My first paid fieldwork was collecting legume seeds for the IBPGR in Israel. During my PhD, I studied a small group of annual Astragalus species, mostly endemic to northwestern California. With collaborators, I have conducted phylogenetic studies of Lathyrus and Trifolium. I do not have active legume research, but I enjoy identifying Astragalus on iNaturalist.
