James Colbert

My early research focused on cell biology and molecular biology in plants - especially on light regulated gene expression in plants. My current research interests include evolution education, biodiversity education, and Iowa lichen diversity. Related to my interests in lichen diversity, I teach an upper level course in bryophyte and lichen biodiversity (Biology 455/EEOB 555) and provide students with opportunities to earn academic credit (Biology 499) for assisting with various aspects of my Iowa lichen research.
