… if we were to rank isolating mechanisms … , behavioural isolation [would be] far ahead of all others”  – Ernst Mayr (1963)

 

We investigate the ecological, genetic and developmental basis of adaptive behaviours that contribute to diversity and speciation. Our work is currently focused on Heliconius butterflies, and combines long term field and insectary based projects in the tropics, with modern genomic and genetic techniques.
