James D Mauseth

Professor Emeritus
Department of Integrative Biology


Research Summary:

Research in my lab centers on evolution of morphogenic mechanisms and structure. We use cacti as model organisms because the family contains a great amount of structural/developmental diversity and because the cactus genus Pekeskia retains numerous relictual characters. Plants of Pereskia have hard woody stems and ordinary large leaves. From ancestors like this, morphogenic mechanisms have evolved into ones capable of controlling the differentiation of various types of highly modified wood, unusual types of cortex that have leaf-like features, and apical meristems that minimize the number of mitoses necessary to produce large plants. Because each evolutionary line in the family has undergone particular types of modification of the morphogenic mechanism, we can compare different types of differentiation of a particular tissue, each type controlled by a homologous morphogenic mechanism.

Short courses taught in Latin America, in Spanish

            (These courses last between one and three weeks and are taught while I am doing field research in the host country during our summer vacation. They are organized by the host professor with whom I am collaborating. Most of these courses then involve taking local students [Chilean or Peruvian] out to the field with us as we collect plant specimens for research.)
