I'm a plant ecologist, thorough nerd, writer and artist.

Folks call me Ivy.  I've studied various aspects of plant biology and explored several roles in ecology as well as some pharmacological plant chemistry, ranging from the south to current home in the Pacific Northwest.  At Natural Coalescence,

I want to take others on journeys with me into the inner lives of plants and their habitats, and sample some along the way.  I'll try to keep the fruitful engagement with plants from going extinct, as I've known for many years that The Botanist is an endangered role.
