Molecular phylogenetics of aphids and other Sternorrhyncha and molecular systematics and behavioral evolution of wasps


Dr. Von-Dohlen's research centers on two major themes. One theme explores compelling questions in insect macroevolution. Areas of inquiry include deciphering evolutionary patterns and processes in life cycles, host-plant relationships, complex behavior, geographic distributions, and diversity. Another theme concerns the evolution of bacterial endosymbiosis in sap-feeding insects.
