Ben worked with Ana Almeida in developing a phylogeny for Costus (Costaceae) before he disappeared into the wilds of Mo'orea never to be seen again. Actually, he was seen again on campus just not in the lab. Ben, an ecologist at heart, was meant for the field and not the lab. He is rumored to have graduated -- if anyone sees him, let me know and I'll update this page!
