We use molecular tools to study the processes that have produced the impressive vertebrate diversity of Mesoamerica and we use this species diversity to answer evolutionary questions. Additionally, we try to apply the results of evolutionary and ecological studies of Mesoamerican vertebrates to promote their conservation.
Lab projects currently use Neotropical lungless salamanders as a biological model, but we are open to working with other vertebrates.
