Welcome to our lab site

We specialize on the ecology, evolution, and development of amphibians. Current projects include research on the diversity of skeletal development, the formation of “vestigial” structures, symbioses between salamander embryos and green algae, limb development, lung development, and descriptive morphology.

While this work is focused on a specific taxonomic group, it touches on many fields within biology.

Liz Hill and Huanjia Zhang, my summer 2016 research students, put together a WordPress site on their experiences in the lab and field.
