The GRW is compiled by an international collective of enthusiasts and experts. Some of us function as overall site editors. Others are Consultants, providing advice and assistance and a professional perspective. We have many Genus Editors, with each individual or team responsible for one or more genera, including all the associated plant pages. And we have authors who have prepared the in-depth articles on the site. Authors are usually, but not always, either consultants or genus editors.

Here’s the roster, changing all the time.

Overall Site Editors
Ron Myhr, Alcie Maxwell and Karyn Cichocki are the overall site editors, responsible for assembling the collective, maintaining standards and herding cats. Hung Nguyen is the Webmaster, responsible for technical matters as well as contributing content. The four of them are distributed among three different time zones, and the two in the same time zone live in different countries.
