Research Interests - Gary Williams

Research continues to focus on evolutionary biology - patterns of structural evolution, systematics, biodiversity and biogeography, as well as the history of science. Specific projects include: morphology and phylogeny is calcaxonian and pennatucean octocorals; new taxa of octocorals from the Pacific Ocean, tropical eastern Atlantic, and the Antarctic; and monographs of regional octocorallian faunas. In addition, work continues on the expansion and development of the Octocoral Research Center website.
