Research in the Branham Lab is focused on insect systematics and evolution. We are interested in reconstructing phylogenies (hierarchical branching patterns that represent genealogical relationships between insect taxa) in order to study the evolution of behavior and morphological characters. In addition, we are also interested in the biogeography of Caribbean insects, especially the beetle family Lampyridae (fireflies). While the insects currently studied by lab members are not always beetles, the methods used and the questions investigated are what unite us.
