Welcome to the Wang Lab…

We study the ways in which geographic and environmental variation shape patterns of genetic and morphological variation. Research in the lab falls into three areas within this general framework: 1) landscape genetics, 2) ecological genomics, and 3) phenotypic evolution. In all areas, we seek to integrate genetic, ecological, and landscape data, using a variety of approaches, to gain a more complete understanding of natural diversity.

We’re a group of like-minded scientists that share a common goal of working to understand patterns and sources of variation in nature. Much of our work is conducted in California, the Caribbean, and Central America, but project sites span the globe. Our typical study systems are amphibians and reptiles, but we have also collaborated on research covering a wide range of species from across the tree of life.
