Dr. Craig Moritz
New tools from genomics, phylogenetics and spatial environmental analysis are revolutionizing our ability to discover diversity and map hotspots of unique species- or phylo-diversity. Here, Dr. Moritz sorts geckos he collected for his research 25 years ago (as a post doctoral student here at the Museum of Zoology) into newly described and yet to be described taxa.
