The Soltis Lab

Scientists and students in the Soltis Lab are currently working with a variety of technologies to investigate mechanisms of speciation, evolutionary relationships and character evolution in flowering and land plants at all taxonomic levels. Current projects include the study of higher level phylogenetic relationships and character evolution in the angiosperms, floral evolution, the genetic and genomic consequences of polyploidy, conservation genetics of rare plants, phylogeography, and biogeography. Please explore our website for more information on our research.

Volunteers

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

All lab volunteers are required to fill out the Volunteer Application and give to Evgeny.

Once an applicant is added to the system and begins working with you, it is your responsibility to train the applicant to safely do the assigned work. Please see Matt or Evgeny if you have questions or need help.

All volunteers must keep track of their hours. We have an online site through OurVolts.com to facilitate this. Hours will be reported based on these logs.
