Stephanie Steffen Biological Sciences

Dr. Kory Evans, Rice University, will present “Rapid evolutionary innovation in the face of integration. The story of the parrotfish beak”

“I am interested in the ecology and evolution of phenotypic diversity,integrating data from developmental biology, ecology, biomechanics, and phylogeny to understand this process at various timescales. My research program is centered on three questions: How do patterns of ontogenetic variation scale to patterns of phenotypic diversity? How do intrinsic (ontogenetic constraints) and extrinsic (environmental variation) factors influence patterns of phenotypic diversification and convergence? How do functional traits co-vary in development and evolution?”
