From ecology to physiology and evolution, ABRP has tackled research questions on a wide range of topics. Areas of special interest include the evolution of social behavior, behavioral endocrinology, functional genetics and genomics, disease ecology, sexual selection, aging, and demography. Links to our publications in these areas can be found here.
We currently have grants from both the NIH and NSF to pursue the following questions. Click the links for summaries of each project.
A long-term perspective
Our research depends on tracking the lives of hundreds of individual animals in several social groups. We think such long-term, longitudinal data on wild animals offers the best opportunity for novel, innovative research in ecology, evolution, genetics, physiology and behavior.
