Featured Author - John T. Mickel
(1934 - )
The New York Botanical Garden Press is proud to recognize John T. Mickel as a featured author. Senior Curator Emeritus in the Institute of Systematic Botany at The New York Botanical Garden, Dr. Mickel's research over five decades has centered on the vast study of the pteridophytes of Mexico, including more than 1,000 species. His long-term monographic studies of two largely tropical American fern genera, Anemia and Elaphoglossum, have resulted in several definitive publications on these groups.
Interpretation of ferns to the public has also been a major part of John Mickel's career, including as a long-time public lecturer on fern cultivation, a horticultural researcher on the cold-hardiness of temperate ferns and a collaborator with growers to make more species available to the public, the founder and only secretary of the New York Fern Society, and the founder of the American Fern Society's bulletin Fiddlehead Forum.
