Laboratory for Plant Molecular Systematics


Research in the Ferguson lab focuses on plant systematics -- the evolutionary study of plant diversity -- and explores questions of phylogeny, taxonomy and evolutionary process. While a number of different plant groups are subjects of investigation, the long-term research focus of the lab is the plant genus Phlox of the family Polemoniaceae. Our work is conducted in the laboratory, as well as in the KSU Herbarium and in the field.
