Jamie Kostyun is a member of Leonie Moyle’s laboratory. Her dissertation research examines the genetic and developmental basis, as well as ecological and evolutionary consequences, of floral trait divergence among 12 species of Jaltomata. This research feeds her desire to understand plant morphological diversity – especially floral diversity – and its potential ecological and evolutionary consequences.
