lead such a life as the children that chase butterflies in a meadow -- Thoreau Aug. 24, 1845

To those who have arrived at this web page after reading a certain book wherein (to my surprise & puzzlement) I am described as getting mad, those who know me know that I do not get mad at anything or anyone (as my wife has often noted). Also, the account of sampling missing species is incorrect & omits key points as the e-mail exchanges clearly show. These misrepresentations naturally lead to the question of what other more significant misrepresentations & errors occur in that book. For a view on species disappearance differing from what is in that book, please read the introduction to my online Vascular Flora of Concord, Massachusetts, and my Phytoneuron article. An illustrated version of this article is HERE.

In my retirement I am a Harvard University Herbaria Associate continuing to pursue botanical research on New England floristics (see atlas link at left) and my online Vascular Flora of Concord, Massachusetts.

Also, for fun, I read about quantum gravity and cosmology and chase other butterflies, such as my lovely wife, Erika, a nature artist.

We have been thriving for more than two years on the whole-food, plant-based, no-oil, no-nuts diet proven by Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD to be the best for cardiovascular health. We have experienced first-hand measurable health benefits as well as a clear enhancement of our sense of well-being.

My volunteer activities also include being a regional reviewer for the Flora of North America Project.

Ray Angelo and wife, Erika
