¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! --- This site is in transition: you are one of the first visitors to the new the Lago Lab website!---
We opened our doors in the Department of Biological Sciences at Louisiana State University in August 2017. Our research comprises a diverse range of projects under the broad banner of plant systematics, from alpha taxonomy to the study of rapid diversification in the Andes. Most of our research focuses on evolution of Neotropical flora, including the co-evolution of hummingbirds and their food plants, exemplified by sicklebills and Centropogon (photo at right). You can find us in the Shirley C. Tucker Herbarium, home to ca. 350k plant specimens that motivate our research.
