Dr. Hagen's Homepage


My primary research interest is in the history of recent intellectual developments in the fields of systematics and evolutionary biology. I am particularly interested in how the use of computers influenced the development of these fields. My earlier research dealt with history of ecology and plant taxonomy.

I am also interested in educational research directed toward developing new approaches to teaching and learning biology at the college level.
