RESEARCH INTERESTS

Mary Liz Jameson is a biodiversity scientist whose research focuses on evolutionary patterns and species diversity. Research in her lab takes an integrative approach to examining patterns of diversity including insect and host-plant interactions, bioinformatics that integrates genomics and biodiversity data, morphological and molecular phylogenetics, systematics and cybertech tools, and biogeography and spatial distributions. Investigations in the Jameson lab include scarab beetles and other insects. Discoveries resulting from studies in the Jameson lab are important in documenting the biotic response to climate change, predicting the geographic potential of invasive species, and recognizing habitat bio-indicators, to name a few.
