Mr Francis Nge
I am part of Michelle Waycott’s lab at the Department of Genetics and Evolution, and am also currently based at the State Herbarium of South Australia.
Fields of interest: Plant systematics, taxonomy, biogeography, evolution, phylogeography, floristics, ecology, ecophysiology.
My project focuses on the patterns of diversity of the native Australian flora, across the southern temperate regions of Australia.
My project aims to elucidate underlying mechanisms and drivers for these patterns in an evolutionary context, with a focus in the fields of biogeography, phylogeny, systematics, and taxonomy.
