Peter Breslin began Ph.D. studies at Arizona State University in the fall of 2014 and completed the Ph.D. in spring 2020, investigating questions regarding the biogeography and evolution of Cactaceae. Under the advisement of Martin Wojciechowski, with the help of committee members Lucas Majure, Shannon Fehlberg, Fabio Albuquerque and Jon Rebman. Breslin pursued research regarding the molecular phylogenetics, ancestral biogeography, climate change impacts on habitat suitability and population viability of the Mammillaria and Cochemiea (Cactaceae) of Baja California and adjacent regions.
Breslin is one of the authors of A Field Guide to Cacti and Succulents of Arizona, published by the Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society, soon in its 3rd edition. He has been traveling to Baja California to find and photograph populations of rare cacti and succulents for the past 25 years. He recently moved to Los Angeles, CA, to teach biology and environmental science at Geffen Academy at UCLA, where he also hopes to continue several research projects
