@rspfau@ecoevo.social

Professor in Biological Sciences at Tarleton State University. My focus is population genetics at the interface between populations and species--including hybridization. Because I work at a university that (historically) has been teaching focused, my research questions and methodology are relatively simple. I like simple science.

I'm active on iNaturalist, posting observations of as many different species as I find and providing identifications of others' observations.
