|Plant systematics and evolution|
I study the diversity of plants at many different scales, from DNA sequences of genes, to populations, species, and communities of plants. My goal is to explore the underlying evolutionary processes that produce and maintain diversity, as well as to document the morphology and geographic distribution of plants around us, much of which is surprisingly poorly known. Research in my lab often uses phylogenies as a framework for addressing the origins of biodiversity.
The Whitlock lab is located in room 232 of Cox Science Center, on the Coral Gables Campus. You can reach the lab at (305) 284-9350.
