Lukas Interest

I am interested in evolutionary biology, particularly in speciation mechanisms. My research focuses on molecular systematics at different taxonomic levels, phylogeography, and population genetics of several fish groups.

Current projects:

Phylogeography of the fighting fish genus Betta (Perciformes: Anabantoidei), in collaboration with Ralf Britz (London Natural History Museum), Peter KL Ng and Hoek Hui Tan (University of Singapore), and Rafael Zardoya (Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, Madrid).

Anabantoid intra- and interrelationships, in collaboration with Ralf Britz (London Natural History Museum) and Rafael Zardoya (Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, Madrid).

Phylogeny of the Badidae (Perciformes: Nandidae), in collaboration with Sven O Kullander (Swedish Museum of Natural History), Ralf Britz (London Natural History Museum) and Rafael Zardoya (Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, Madrid).
