Our Research

We are interested in understanding the origins of biodiversity from the level of local adaptation and limiting gene flow in single landscapes, through the genetics of entire species' ranges, to understanding the causes of diversification of entire clades.

Our Approaches

We use high-resolution molecular markers, morphometrics and sonographic and colour analyses to map variation across the ranges of organisms, and more recently have begun to combine these with experimental approaches (phonotaxis, hybridization), GIS and automated climate measurement to understand the causes and consequences of diversity across geographical and temporal scales.
