We carry out evolutionary ecology and conservation research in coastal ecosystems, with emphasis on marine invasions and threatened species.

We work at the interface between academic research and applied conservation practice. All Wasson lab members are affiliated both with University of California, Santa Cruz and with the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and we all carry out much of our fieldwork in coastal habitats of the Elkhorn Slough watershed.
