Ecology and Population Biology
Research Categories: Evolutionary genetics in natural plant populations
Research Description: We conduct research on broad issues in evolutionary genetics, and we are currently addressing questions relating to the evolution of adaptation, reproductive isolation, breeding systems, inbreeding depression, and floral traits in natural plant populations.
