Research

Hadogenes paucides
In the scorp lab at CIBIO, we combine molecular phylogentics with functional morphology and biomechanics to see how different groups have evolved unique survival strategies. We don’t just work with scorpions, but also other animals, such as camel spiders and even lizards.

 

Life in the lab: (for life in the field, see some of our videos!)
