Welcome

Welcome

We are phylogenetic biologists interested in the evolution of plants. Our efforts focus on inferring phylogenetic relationships within plant groups at various scales, but especially on the use of phylogenetic information in understanding evolution and ecology. Major areas of interest include the evolution of morphological traits, patterns of diversification, and historical biogeography in relation to the assembly of regional biotas and local communities. We integrate empirical studies of particular plant lineages with the development and use of phylogenetic comparative methods.
