Scientific and Popular Works

Post Fiona sand dune skeleton.jpg


I have dozens of publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Canadian Field-Naturalist and the Canadian Journal of Botany, and in popular media such as The Island Magazine and RED: The Island Storybook.  I've also created educational brochures, books and maps (and even one comic book!) for non-governmental organizations.  You can contact me for a full listing, but some examples are given here.

One question I get a lot: is there a book in my future?  Very likely, I just haven't decided exactly what or when!
