Dr. George Weiblen

My lab studies plant and insect systematics, molecular phylogenetics, empirical population genetics, pollination ecology and coevolution. We combine experimental fieldwork in tropical and temperate ecosystems with specimen-based research and DNA sequencing to study the ecology and evolution of plant-insect interactions in New Guinea. The study of coevolution between figs, their pollinating wasps and parasites is a particular focus of research. Other interests include Cannabis genetics, phylogenetic theory, floristics, and biodiversity conservation. I am currently accepting students.
