Laboratory for Amphibian Systematic & Evolutionary Research


The LASER at Nanjing Forestry University is dedicated to research on amphibian evolution, diversity, and systematics, especially (but not exclusively) from a molecular perspective.


Current projects integrate next-generation phylogeography for species delimitation, speciation and conservation genetics, presently using Eurasian anurans as model systems. We (re)visit their diversifications by genomic methods to study their evolution, which sometimes lead to the discovery of taxa new to science.

The lab is always opened for new projects / collaborations. Feel free to contact for enquiries.
