Biography

Ralf Knapp was born in Eberbach, Germany in 1969, and now lives in Taipei, Taiwan since 1998. More than 14 years ago he came to Taiwan to work in his profession as an electrical engineer for a German company in their Taipei office. After marrying a Taiwanese, he could intensify his studies of Taiwanese pteridophytes and gymnosperms, which he started some 9 years ago. Prior to moving to Taiwan, he had been working on Central European vascular plants, and for some years he was invited to join a program of the Bavarian Ministry of Environmental Protection focusing on monitoring and protection of rare and endemic plants. During his field work in Taiwan he built-up a private herbarium with now more than 5,000 specimen sheets, and an image database of exceeding 200,000.
