I am Kai Schablewski.

Since my childhood I am very interested in botany and always wanted to learn as much as possible about the planet's flora.

I've never committed myself to just one group of plants, but some groups are particularly intriguing. These are the plants with special survival strategies such as cacti, alpine plants, parasitic plants, mycoheterotrophic plants or bromeliads.

My main hobbys are plant identification and learning about plants and their evolution. I also help identifying plants on Flickr, where i have identified several thousand plants too.

My favourite plants on Flickr

I hope that iNaturalist becomes an increasingly important tool for science and nature conservation.
Nature conservation has never been more important than today where many species go extinct because of human activity.

I live in Marburg, Germany, where i have studied botany. I am looking for a new job. My biggest wish would be to work in a botanical garden.

I have started several projects on iNaturalist recently!
These new projects are still a work in progress.

Feel free to join:

Myco-heterotrophic plants of the World

Parasitic plants of the World

Myrmecophytes of the World

Cushion plants of the World

Alpine plants of the World

As a curator on iNaturalist, my goals are in particular the identification of unusual species and the expansion of the database as well as the continuous correction.

If you like to add pictures of cultivated plants please set the checkmark for Captive / Cultivated !

Feel free to ask questions, i like to help!
