• Evolution of microbial populations with spatial and environmental structure 

    Miller, Eric Louis (2010-05)
    Rarely are natural conditions constant, but generally biologists study microbes in artificially constant environments in the laboratory. I relaxed these assumptions of constant environments through time and space as I ...
  • Male strategies for changing group membership in Verreaux's sifaka 

    Leimberger, Kara Grace; 0000-0002-8049-7955 (2015-05)
    Males of many group-living mammals disperse to avoid inbreeding and improve their mating opportunities. Different strategies may exist for immigrants, such as replacing the alpha male or entering a group as a subordinate. ...
  • Scale and process : primate and non-primate mammal community composition and diversity in Madagascar 

    Bannar-Martin, Katherine Hilary; 0000-0001-8595-6279 (2015-05)
    The study of community assembly, or the processes that shape the occurrence of species in an ecological community, is a fundamental area of inquiry in ecology. Patterns in community composition and diversity are attributed ...
  • Sex and social hierarchies affect populations across landscapes 

    Shaw, Roger William (2016-05-09)
    Ecologists have long been interested in the factors that drive the species composition of ecological communities. I propose that variation within species, particularly in dispersal behavior, plays an underappreciated role, ...
  • Understanding coral dispersal 

    Davies, Sarah Whitney (2014-05)
    Understanding the factors influencing species ranges and dispersal are becoming increasingly important as climate change alters species distributions worldwide. If species are to persist, life-history strategies must rapidly ...
