Chris Haufler
Professor Emeritus
Haworth Hall, 5026

Professor Haufler's research focuses on the evolutionary history, population genetics, and speciation of ferns. He is particularly interested in the life cycle dynamics of these “seed free” plants as well as the role of polyploidy and gene silencing in the genetics of the lineages.

Dr. Rudolf Jander
