Profile

Senior Research Scientist at the Western Australian Herbarium.

Juliet undertakes taxonomic research on a range of plant groups in Western Australia, with a focus on new taxa that are rare or poorly known. Her primary research interest is the taxonomy, evolution and ecology of Stylidium (the triggerplants), a genus with a centre of diversity in the south-west of Western Australia. She provides specialist identification of Stylidium specimens and photographs along with expert scientific advice on Stylidium conservation in Western Australia. Juliet is the Managing Editor of Nuytsia, the journal of the Western Australian Herbarium.


Expertise

  • Stylidium taxonomy, phylogeny and pollination ecology.
  • Taxonomic assessment and description of new Western Australian plant taxa.
  • Botanical nomenclature.
  • Botanical history.
  • Scientific editing.
  • Conservation assessments.
