Welcome to the Daru Lab!

The Daru Lab studies evolutionary biogeography of marine plants in the context of two key questions: (i) What are the mechanisms underlying the processes by which marine plant diversity has evolved, is currently distributed and will be maintained? (ii) Is the current network of marine protected areas sufficient to safeguard the evolutionary diversity of marine plants? Learn more about our research here…

I am thrilled to be joining the Department of Life Sciences at Texas A&M University Corpus-Christi as an Assistant Professor. I am now recruiting postdocs and students! Click here for more information on joining the lab.
