A majority of the lab is presenting at the Evolution Meetings in Norman, OK this weekend. Almost all of our talks use a group of fish as a model system (Labrids, Haemulids, pupfish, sticklebacks, Xiphophorus, and reef fish), but our topics are very broad; including sexual selection, morphological diversity, ecological novelty, nocturnality, phylogenetic comparative methods and ecological speciation. Below is a list of our talks at the meeting. Bold indicates presenting author. Hope to see you there.
