New ARC grant to study the evolution of recombination during speciation with gene flow

New papers on the parallel evolution of coastal forms in Senecio. Congratulations Federico!

Commentary on flower colour speciation genes

In the Ortiz-Barrientos Lab we study the genetics of speciation and adaptation. We are currently exploring the replicated evolution of traits and reproductive isolation, the early stages of speciation and the origin of ecotypes, the molecular causes of reproductive isolation and adaptation, the quantitative genetics of ecologically important traits and fitness, and the role of sexual selection on speciation. Please visit our pages to learn more about our research, our team members, and about adaptation and speciation in the Senecio lautus complex.
