Dr. Agnarsson's LAB

Island Biogeography Link


I’m an evolutionary biologist working on various fronts. My main research applies phylogenetics, and population genetics to address evolutionary questions with a focus on spiders. Current topics include evolution of sociality in spiders, evolutionary biomechanical of spider silk, and a large project on the biogeography of the Caribbean and the role of dispersal in diversification.
