Research

Overview

The Botero Laboratory uses a variety of tools from ecology and evolutionary biology to explore the process of adaptation under repeated environmental change.  Using theoretical models, large-scale comparative analyses, and experiments in the lab and the field, we seek a better undderstanding of important, yet often neglected phenomena such as fluctuating selection and environmental unpredictability.
