Welcome to the Marko lab at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.  Our lab uses molecular genetics to ask questions about basic science and applied research in the sea, from the evolution of new species to what fish are in your local grocery. Much of our research is focused on large spatial scales, so our work takes us around the world in search of new specimens, populations, and species.

Hot off the press:  Phylogeography of the trans-tropical barnacle Pollicipes elegans, thermal tolerance seasonality in barnacles, Phylogeography of the threatened butterfly Speyeria diana, phylogeny and egg size evolution in Nucella.


Coming soon: A watertight case for a young Isthmus of Panama, species discrimination and niche evolution in Pollicipes barnacles, massive range expansions in Littorina.
