Current Members of the Wolfe Lab
Paul studies evolutionary process in Penstemon section Penstemon subsection Proceri. This group has many polyploid species. Paul is interested in examining the evolutionary dynamics of polyploidy, especially from a genomics and modeling perspective.

Shannon worked on the basal lineage of Penstemon, including phylogenetics, population genetics, and pollination ecology. She has continued her work on Penstemon with a focus on subgenus Saccanthera. She is currently an associate professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at California State University, Sacramento.
