Introduction: His research has focussed on fungal diversity, systematics, and nomenclature, especially of ascomycetes, lichen-forming fungi, and fungi that obligately occur on lichens. Current research involves the use of molecular phylogenetic (including microsatellites and haplotype networks) methods to resolving classifications, especially in macrolichens, co-evolution of lichenicolous fungi and their host lichens, and utilizing fungi in forensic investigations (with his wife, Professor Wiltshire) and environmental surveys. He continues to be involved in improving nomenclatural rules, to make them more pragmatic, and has served on the Editorial Committee for the last five editions of what is now the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants.
