Research Description: We are interested in mechanisms that underlie the origin and maintenance of biodiversity in reptiles and amphibians. A common theme in our lab is identifying and measuring mechanisms of temporal and spatial changes in neutral and functional population genetic differentiation. To do so we address questions at various scales, ranging from individuals (mating systems, relatedness, or reproductive success), to populations (fine-scale population genomics and phylogeography), to species (higher-level systematics). Our main gol is to understand how the environment, organisms, and their genomes change to result in phenotypic diversity at varying geographic scales.
