PBG of the Day : DR. JESSICA WARE

Dr. Jessica Ware is an evolutionary biologist. In her past and current research, she has focused on four main areas: systematics, behaviour, biodiversity and biogeography.

Using molecular and morphological techniques she has used modern phylogenetic analyses to evaluate species, test family monophyly, assess biogeographical distributions in light of divergence time estimates and improve conservation efforts.

She is secretary of the World Dragonfly Association, and past president of the SysEB section of the Entomological Society of America. Jessica is a member of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas, the Society of Systematic Biology, the Entomological Society of America, and the World Dragonfly Association.
