FOWLER-FINN LAB

EVOLUTIONARY ECOLOGY OF ARTHROPODS

In the Fowler-Finn Lab, we study the evolutionary processes underlying biological diversification.

 

We study phenotypic variation across biotic and abiotic environmental gradients in a variety of insects and arachnids.

 

A major theme of our research centers around the interaction between plasticity and patterns of genetic and environmental variation.

We are excited to start working on a recently funded NSF grant: Genetic change and genetic accommodation allow singing insects to adapt to temperature change! Please check the 'joining the lab' page for details about a postdoctoral opportunity associated with the project!
