Alex Monro

Alex is Alex Monroa plant taxonomist at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. His research aims to generate and document biological diversity data and collections and to use these to establish and test hypotheses of relationships between taxa or areas. In doing so, he aims to help meet civil society’s demands on taxonomy as articulated in the Convention on Biological Diversity, its work programme and cross-cutting issues. Foci for this are the plant family Urticaceae (nettles), the Neotropics, karst and SW China.
