Richard H. Ree received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 2001 and became assistant curator in the botany department of the Field Museum of Natural History in 2003. Initially interested in the Passifloraceae (passion fruit family) of the New World tropics, Ree became intrigued by the diversity of the flora in the Hengduan region and the question of why so many closely related species had evolved in such close proximity. His doctoral dissertation was a detailed study of a small part of the highly diverse genus Pedicularis (louseworts), whose greatest concentration of species is in the Hengduan Mountains of China.
