Research in the Richards-Zawacki lab lies at the intersection of ecology and evolutionary biology and often (though not always) focuses on amphibians.
The questions we ask address:
- How climate and host/pathogen evolution shape the dynamics of wildlife diseases
- How and when reproductive isolation evolves during speciation
- The effects of changes in climate and landscape on species distributions and diversity
- The natural history and conservation of endangered amphibians
