aka Marty (he/his). Botanist with New Mexico Forestry Division (Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department) and relatively recent immigrant to Albuquerque (NM) still learning the flora out here!

I work for the state's Rare and Endangered Plants Program, more info on which can be found here https://www.emnrd.nm.gov/sfd/rare-plants/, and for all things NM rare plants see https://nmrareplants.unm.edu/. Also, if you observe (rare) plants in New Mexico, please consider joining our iNaturalist project to track and monitor state endangered species: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/new-mexico-state-endangered-plants

I occasionally link my herbarium collections with observations on here using QR codes on the specimen labels. If a particular iNaturalist observation has a corresponding specimen, the collection number will be cited in the comments as "MDP #", "M. Purdy #", "Purdy #" or some other combination of my name/initials and the collection number. These specimens can be located by searching the appropriate Symbiota portal or online herbaria consortium (e.g., https://www.cch2.org/portal/, https://swbiodiversity.org/seinet/index.php).

MS in Botany (2022) - California Botanic Garden / Claremont Graduate University (https://www.calbg.org/research/graduate-program)
BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology & BA in Environmental Studies (2013) - UC Santa Cruz.
