Lab News & Announcements
Welcome to the Laboratory of Integrative and Comparative Herpetology. Research in our lab seeks to understand how forces such as evolutionary history, the physical environment, and interactions among species affect an animal's morphology, physiology, ecology, behavior, and life history. In short, we study the "how" and the "why" of animal function. We study these relationships in amphibians and reptiles because they are ideal organisms for testing hypotheses that lie at the interface of these subdisciplines of biology.
