Javier Francisco-Ortega, Associate Professor of Biology


Javier Francisco-Ortega is an associate professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at FIU, where he teaches and studies plant systematics with a focus on using molecular tools to establish phylogenetic relationships among taxa. He is also the head of FIU/Fairchild Plant Molecular Systematics Laboratory for the Center for Tropical Plant Conservation at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami, Fla.

Rooted in Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s strong tradition and commitment to plant exploration, Javier’s studies have a strong field component. The vast majority of his studies concern plants endemic to tropical and subtropical islands, and they are conducted in close collaboration with colleagues working on those islands.
