Author: M. Patrick Griffith

M. Patrick Griffith was born in Korea, and lived many places as a child, noting the great differences in the shape of the land and the plants that grow on it. During his early years at the University of Texas at Austin, he began a career in plants, working, studying and receiving degrees in botany, biology, and administration in Austin (1998), Alpine (2000), Claremont (2005) and Miami (2008). Patrick has worked in leadership, living collections management, herbarium curation, rare plant survey, floristic inventory, laboratory research, and land management, for botanic gardens, universities, government, and private interests. If asked about his experience, Patrick would say he has "used most every botanic garden tool, from the shovel to the sequencer." Since 2005, he has led Montgomery Botanical Center as Executive Director. Patrick's academic activity has been in plant systematics and plant conservation, and is focused on living botanical collections, mainly palms and cycads. He has served on the IUCN Cycad Specialist Group since 2007, and has served as Co-Chair since 2013.
