Our research is aimed at understanding the causes and consequences of change in biological diversity. We focus on multiple levels and types of diversity: within and among species, communities and ecosystems. We are also concerned with understanding behaviour, how it evolves and is maintained, how it shapes evolution, and its role in generating and maintaining biodiversity.

We conduct research on a wide range of taxa including corals, spiders, birds, aquatic invertebrates, plants and diatoms but most of the group works with fishes, focusing primarily on guppies, minnows, salmonids and marine larvae.

We are an international group of people and have ongoing projects and collaborations distributed worldwide…
