John P Wares


Though I've worked on many phyla in many habitats, marine invertebrates, crustaceans, and barnacles in particular are my forté. I studied invertebrate zoology with Alan Kohn and George Shinn at Friday Harbor Labs in 1996, graduated with my Ph.D. from Duke Zoology in 2000 (advised by Cliff Cunningham), and had outstanding and enjoyable postdocs with Tom Turner (University of New Mexico) and Rick Grosberg (University of California at Davis). I've been at the University of Georgia since 2005.
