Studies in evolution in the Division of Biological Sciences address a range of evolutionary processes at multiple levels of organization and using a wide array of approaches, including genetics, genomics, computation, field studies, advanced imaging, phylogenomics, and behavioral experiments. Research topics include chromosome evolution, evolution of communication, evolution of novel traits, molecular evolution, phylogeography, and community and population dynamics. Research in this area benefits from several campus core research facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories, walk-in acoustic chambers, climate-controlled chambers, and an artificial pond facility.
