Welcome to the Daru Lab!

The Daru Lab studies evolutionary biogeography of vascular plants in the context of two key questions: i) What are the mechanistic processes by which species diversity has evolved, and is currently distributed and maintained? ii) How can we set meaningful conservation priorities to safeguard their future? 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.
