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.
