Phenotypic vs genotypic approaches to biodiversity, from conflict to alliance.
Taxonomy has traditionally been based on morphological characters. Such a "phenotypic taxonomy" has steadily been replaced by the advent of molecular approaches, culminating with the rapid sequencing of genetic barcodes.
The convenience of barcoding and its relative ease has relegated "phenotypic taxonomy" to a historical status. One major goal of our research is to connect microevolutionary processes on short time scales with macroevolutionary diversification on longer time scales. Together we explore various central topics in ecology and evolution, including natural and sexual selection in the wild, the evolutionary dynamics discrete visual phenotypic polymorphisms e.
Another rapidly emerging research theme in our laboratory is the evolution of thermal adaptation and thermal plasticity. Our research is theory-based and we use various modelling tools, ranging from classical population genetics to simulation models. However, we are also empiricists and rely on our strong tradition of field experiments in natural settings or in mesocosms. We strive for quantitative tests of evolutionary hypotheses.
We have also contributed to improve the statistical methods in study of natural and sexual selection, and developed phylogenetic resources for comparative analyses. Being quantitative biologists, we rely primarily on three approaches in our research: experimental evolutionary ecology, quantitative genetics and phylogenetic comparative methods.
Ecology, Behavior & Evolution
However, research in our laboratory has also included several other organismal groups, such as diving beetles Coleoptera , freshwater isopods Crustacea , lizards Reptilia and ostriches Aves.
