". . . natural history observation and thinking are essential to understanding the origin, maintenance, and significance of biodiversity." - R. Ricklefs, 2012
Geographical, geological, and conservation context are also important foundations for our work. Belau, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and New York State are focal areas for our research, and we love working with the people there to help answer evolutionary, ecological, and conservation-centered questions. Please check out specific pages to explore some of our field sites in Belau, FSM, and New York State.
