Research of the Biosystematics Group

Research in the Biosystematics Group is focused on the origin and maintenance of biodiversity. We investigate evolution at the species, population, and molecular level to address fundamental questions about themes like speciation, domestication and species interactions.  

The Biosystematics Group is affiliated to the Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity Naturalis (NCB) which houses most biological collections in The Netherlands, and which will offer facilities for ancient DNA and DNA barcoding. Our research is incorporated in the research program of the Graduate Schools Experimental Plant Sciences (EPS).
