Prof. Giribet’s primary research focuses on the evolution, systematics and biogeography of invertebrate animals, including the use of morphology and next generation sequencing techniques. Current projects in the Giribet lab include a comprehensive study of the harvestmen of New Zealand, their systematics and biogeography, and a textbook on invertebrates. We also work on other projects on systematics and biogeography of arthropods, mollusks and onychophorans, among other groups. He is also interested in homology-related issues and the use of genomic-level data for inferring phylogenies.
