McGlothlin Lab 2016. L-R: Arin Davis, Julie Wiemerslage, Sarah Foltz, Emily Meeks, Blake Spiers, Tamara Fetters, Joel McGlothlin, Emily Watts, Tyler Miller, Mackenzie Huber, Thomas Wood

The McGlothlin Lab 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.
