Todd LaJeunesse

I am interested in the relative influence of biotic and abiotic factors on the coevolution of animal-microbe mutualisms, including the rate of evolution in response to climate change. I am broadly interested in processes of speciation/extinction and developing/applying molecular tools for assessing ecologically relevant diversity. I also seek to change the current antiquated approach in the formal naming of microbial eukaryotes.
