The Bryolab is led by Professor Brent Mishler of UC Berkeley’s Integrative Biology Department. Research in this lab focuses primarily on the study of bryophytes, though some students have wandered from the one true path. Emphasis is placed upon (but not limited to) systematics, cladistic analysis biogeography, water relations, developmental morphology, and reproductive ecology.

Brent Mishler is also the Director of the University and Jepson Herbaria, one of the largest botanical research collections in North America.

Lab News:

Brent along with Bryolab grad students Jenna, Ixchel, Javi, & Caleb went to SO BE FREE, an annual foray now hosted by the California Native Plant Society Bryophyte Chapter. This year it was in San Luis Obispo County, and it was a blast! For more details and photos, check out this blog.
