I am a specialist in the family Costaceae. I have been studying these plants in neo tropical forests for over 20 years and have completed 20 IUCN Red List assessments for Costus species.

I have been working with Paul Maas of The Netherlands and Chelsea Specht of Cornell University on a revision to the monograph on new world Costus and in March 2023 we published 18 new species in Costaceae. Additional information is available on my website at www.gingersrus.com.

My primary interest is visiting the type localities of little known species that were collected by early plant explorers.
