Dr giacomo bernardi presents the genetics of lessepsian bioinvasions

Giacomo Bernardi is Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at University of California Santa Cruz. He earned his B.A., M.S., Ph.D., at the University of Paris and did post-doctoral work from 1991 to 1994 Hopkins Marine Station at Stanford University.


Giacomo Bernardi Giacomo Bernardi Molecular Ecology Evolution of Fishes

His research includes Working on phylogeography, speciation and molecular ecology of fishes, and particularly in fishes lacking a pelagic larval phase, Gulf of California and Pacific disjunct species, and in surfperches (Embiotocidae). His research compares phylogeographic and gene expression patterns to test for local adaptation in a high gene flow species. He is also interested in populations structure of coastal and island groupers. He also investigates adult population structure and the structure of a new year-class within Sebastes mystinus (blue rockfish) and Sebastes atrovirens (kelp rockfish) over multiple temporal and spatial scales. He studiesa at the Richard Gump South Pacific Research Station.
