Major Field of Interest

Evolutionary Biology

Current Research

Research in the McGlothlin Lab focuses on the evolution of complex phenotypes. We are interested both in how selection shapes integrated groups of traits and in the genetic and physiological mechanisms that underlie such trait groups. We tackle these problems using both empirical and theoretical approaches and incorporate ideas and techniques from diverse fields, including evolutionary genetics, behavioral ecology, and physiology.
