CSUF Molecular Ecology Lab

Populations display structure and diversity across a variety of spatial scales. When organisms move from one place to another, they carry historical and contemporary genetic signatures - from indicators of ancestry and isolation to recent environmental and human-mediated impacts. Using molecular genetic tools coupled with field data, our research group identifies spatial, temporal, ecological and behavioural patterns of variation in natural and disturbed populations from a variety of marine and freshwater systems.

The members of CSUF Molecular Ecology Lab support our Black neighbors and Persons of Color at home and abroad in the struggle against discrimination, injustice, oppression, and unequal opportunities in every aspect of the life experience.
