The Evolutionary Ecology of Colonization & Invasion
How does ecology evolve? Can adaptation to new environments encountered during range expansion or climate change alter the
movement and persistence of organisms? These questions are fundamental to understanding how ecology might change over short timescales, and play a special role in understanding the success of
introduced (a.k.a. non-native / exotic / invasive) species.
In the Dlugosch Lab, we study the
genetics and evolutionary dynamics of ecology, using a
variety of genetic approaches (quantitative,
molecular, and genomic) in combination with field experiments and
