The McGlothlin Lab at Virginia Tech studies the evolution of complex traits. We are interested in how natural selection shapes such traits and the mechanisms underlie them. We use both empirical and theoretical approaches and incorporate ideas and techniques from diverse fields, including evolutionary genetics, behavioral ecology, and physiological ecology.
