We seek to understand
1) how sexual selection, social behaviour, and ecological conditions affect the evolution of mating strategies and morphology.
2) the mechanistic traits underlying fitness. We measure physiological and morphological correlates of competitive success, development, and endurance to provide tools and suggest processes critical to understanding behavioural and morphological evolution.
