Welcome to a research lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder, with broad interests in the evolution of biodiversity on Earth. We specialize in plant and lichen biodiversity, but celebrate all research in Biology… the science of endless forms most beautiful…


The Tripp Lab is now recruiting one prospective PhD student in lichenology (start date: Fall 2016). The PhD thesis will emphasize correlates of lichen biodiversity gradients in a global biodiversity hotspot: the Southern Appalachian Mountains. It will draw evidence from diverse fields including genomics, fieldwork, and systematic biology. Email Erin ( for further inquiry.
