in the Chiari lab focuses on vertebrate ecology
and evolutionary biology. We use approaches and
techniques from a diversity of fields, including
field ecology, molecular ecology, evolution,
genomics, and morphometrics. Two of the main
research topics addressed by our work are:
the influence of ecological, environmental,
functional, and genetic factors on morphological
evolution within and among species of reptiles.
the response of organisms and communities to
environmental disturbance due to human impacts
(e.g., pollution, deforestation, climate change)
and the factors underlying differential
responses within and between populations.
have two new papers accepted for publication!
One in Oecologia and one in Estuaries and
