About us


Research 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:

 

1) the influence of ecological, environmental, functional, and genetic factors on morphological evolution within and among species of reptiles.

 

2) 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.
