    About This Project

    A major goal of ecology is to understand how organisms are distributed in nature. My research addresses the consequences of a low-dispersal red seaweed that inhabits a vast range of rocky shores across Western and Northeastern Atlantic coastlines. I will use genetic techniques to explain the relationship between short-distance dispersal and long-range distribution. This project will underscore the role of dispersal on the spatial scale of gene flow.
