Our lab is broadly interested in plant evolutionary ecology. We investigate a wide range of questions using field, greenhouse and molecular studies. Our research is typically aimed at elucidating the ecological and evolutionary selective factors responsible for variation present in natural plant populations. Currently, much of our work centers on mating system theory, adaptive responses to climate change and ecological genetics. For more about what we do, please visit Research and our Lab Blog.
To know the breeding system is to know the genetic architecture of a species.
To know the evolution of a breeding system is to know how evolution works.
