Sara Branco


Sara joined the Bruns and Taylor labs in July of 2011 as a postdoctoral fellow. I am an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding the diversity of life. I focus on fungi and work to unveil the mechanisms involved in shaping their diversity in nature. I see communities and populations as part of a continuum and integrate these different biological levels of organization to achieve a broader understanding of diversity. I aim at clarifying the patterns and processes shaping fungal diversity, from adaptation and speciation to community assembly.
