Avian ecology, behavior, demography, mating systems, and life history evolution
My research focuses on the ultimate processes that generate vertebrate diversity, including genetically or culturally transmitted traits or those that arise through phenotypic plasticity. What environmental factors encourage plasticity in individuals? Shape the level of variation within and among populations? Lead to isolation among gene pools? How does habitat alteration or climate change alter these processes?
