Summary

Canada Research Chair in Behavioural Ecology. Our lab uses an empirical approach to examine a broad set of topics in behavioral and evolutionary ecology, with particular emphasis on the evolution and maintenance of mating systems and strategies, the trade-offs between reproduction and immunity, the evolution of sexual dimorphism and sperm competition.

We test hypotheses in the lab and field using North American gryllid field crickets and the weta of New Zealand as model organisms. In addition to our empirical work, we have a strong interest in reviewing and synthesizing the primary literature using meta-analysis, commenting on statistical issues and analyzing scientific practices.
