We are a lab of evolutionary ecologists working in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Lethbridge. Current research includes experimental and theoretical work on plant-insect interactions, species coexistence, the evolution of cooperation, and the evolution of senescence.
I am currently recruiting students. See the 'Join us!' page for details.

The lab has just returned from the annual meeting of the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution. The meeting was a success, with Vincent, Patrick, and Rob giving talks, and Sue and Kevin presenting posters. Here is a lab photo at Lake Louise, taken during our road trip to Kelowna, the site of the meeting (i.e., at UBCO):
