Professional Summary

See https://culleylab.com for more information. Topics: Plant population biology and genetics, especially of invasive and endangered species; integrative taxonomy; evolution of breeding systems, especially cleistogamy and dioecy; ecological and genetic effects of habitat fragmentation.

Education

Ph.D.: The Ohio State University Columbus, OH, 2000 (Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology)

B.S.: University of California- Irvine Irvine, CA, 1994 (Biological Sciences, concentration in Ecology & Environmental Biology)

Research and Practice Interests

In my lab, we are interested in the evolution of plant breeding systems and the interplay between the reproductive biology of a species (its pollination biology, seed production, susceptibility to herbivory, etc.) and population genetics. I incorporate both ecological and genetic approaches in my research because they both yield valuable insights into evolutionary questions. Vist the Culley Laboratory Website for further information. The main topics include the following:

  • Conservation of rare Hawiian plants
  • Invasive Ornamental Plants, Including the Callery Pear (Pyrus calleryana)
  • Publication Bias 
  • Integrative Taxonomy in Camassia
  • Evolution of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Genus Schiedea
  •
