Tim Upson is the Superintendent of Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
My interests are in plant diversity, reflected both in my position as Superintendent of the University Botanic Garden and research in plant systematics and conservation. As Superintendent much of my time involves curating and running the Botanic Garden, which grows over 8,000 plant species and provides research facilities, as part of its role.
Research interests are in plant systematics and are presently focused on the family Labiatae and especially the genera Rosmarinus and Lavandula, the latter currently being monographed. This utilises herbarium studies and molecular methods to investigate phylogenetic relationships and biogeography. Major collections of both genera are held at the Botanic Garden, which also include many cultivars, grown to investigate the horticultural taxonomy of these economically important plants. Other research interests include the systematics of the Araceae, the conservation and evolution of island plants.
