John Wares, Co-Investigator / Associate Professor

Research Emphasis:

I am motivated to work on projects that extend our ability to apply theoretical advances to real populations, particularly when these genetic methods allow us to describe the demographic history of threatened species, cryptic populations, and incipient speciation events.
