Welcome to the Fishman Lab - Plant Evolutionary Genetics

We seek to understand the evolutionary and genetic mechanisms that maintain variation within populations, cause adaptive divergence, and lead to speciation. We mostly study monkeyflowers (Mimulus), a group of plants with both tremendous diversity and growing genetic/genomic resources. Read more about current research here.

Interested in joining the lab? Please contact Dr. Fishman (lila.fishman@mso.umt.edu) directly if you are interested in graduate studies in plant evolution through the Organismal Biology and Ecology program. We also often have positions available for undergraduate students (paid or for credit)
