Evolution & Development

Ralph Ackerman

Physiological, ecological and biophysical aspects of heat and mass exchange between organisms and their environments, with current research on the ecological physiology and biophysical ecology of reptile and avian eggs and embryos.

Dean Adams

Comparative evolutionary biology; micro- and macroevolutionary morphology; theory and analytical methods in evolution; herpetology; morphometrics.

Anne Bronikowski

Evolutionary genetics and population biology of life history variation in snakes. The evolution and persistence of senescence and the menopause in mammals.

Fred Janzen

Molecular and experimental evolutionary ecology, primarily of reptiles; the relative impact of environmental and genetic factors on variation in, and evolution of, adaptive physiological traits like sex-determining mechanisms; the genetic structure of, and relationships among, individuals, populations, and higher taxa.

Jeanne Serb

Molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and evolution of developmental pathways; identification of genetic and environmental factors involved in complex trait evolution, with an emphasis on eyes and life history in molluscs.

Nicole Valenzuela

Ecological and Evolutionary genomics of phenotypic plasticity, developmental pathways, and sex determination. Life history evolution, conservation and ecological genetics of turtles.

Jonathan Wendel

Evolutionary divergence between populations and species, speciation mechanisms, and molecular evolution.
