I am interested in the
evolution of plant diversity, particularly at the lowest taxonomic
levels. In my lab we use multidisciplinary approaches to address a
variety of questions in plant evolutionary biology from traditional
taxonomy to phylogeography and population genetics.
Current projects include:
1. Phylogeography of California Channel Islands flora
2. Systematics of Platanthera section Limnorchis
3. Biogeography of rhizobia-legume
4. Digitization of the MSU herbarium
Congratulations to Hanna
Dorman (M.S. student) for receiving a GSRA from the Botanical Society
of America for her research on rhizobial diversity in Chamaecrista
Congratulations to Lavanya Challagundla for completing her Ph.D.!
We welcome Walter Aminger to the lab to begin work on a Ph.D. and
Alenda Buchanan as an undergraduate researcher.

Associate Professor and Curator of the Herbarium
