Biodiversity and Evolution

I am interested in understanding speciation and diversification patterns of plants, questioning the role of adaptation in the emergence and the maintenance of species boundaries. This includes the analysis of intra and interspecific diversity for conservation purposes or for phylogeographic analyses using various molecular markers from different genomes (nucleus, chloroplast, mitochondria).
