Our research is focused on understanding the causes and consequences of the enormous diversity in plant reproductive strategies. We integrate techniques from quantitative and population genetics, comparative biology, field biology, theory, and genome analysis and mapping. We use these approaches to understand ecological and evolutionary processes that produce and maintain natural variation, including its adaptive significance, the response to selection, and underlying genetic mechanisms.
Here is a video of a 15 minute lab talk that describes the work of our current lab members. This talk was created for the 2021 Queen’s Biology Graduate Research Symposium
