Welcome to Nason Lab
Members of the Nason lab are evolutionary biologists who use ecological and genetic approaches to study evolutionary processes. A common theme in our research has been investigation of the factors influencing gene flow and their impact on the structuring of genetic variation at various scales of organization, be it within populations, across natural landscapes, or between diverging species.
If you have an interest in the research that we do and would like to join our lab in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology (EEOB) at Iowa State University, please contact Professor John Nason.
- Extraordinarily precise nematode sex ratios: adaptive responses to vanishingly rare mating options
- Host switching and unrecognized species diversity in non-pollinating, parasitic fig wasps
- Inferring processes of coevolutionary diversification in a community of Panamanian strangler figs and associated pollinating wasps
- Ecological factors associated with pre-dispersal predation of fig seeds and wasps by fig-specialist lepidopteran larvae
