Darwin suggested that evolution was very slow, and this view prevailed until very recently. Now, however, we recognize that ecological changes are causing evolution all around us all the time. Following this change in perception, researchers have become interested in the consequences of contemporary evolution for ecological dynamics; i.e., changes in populations, communities, and ecosystems.

Eco-evolutionary dynamics broadly considers ongoing interactions between ecology and evolution. Most work in our lab has thus far focused on one direction of causality in these dynamics – how ecological changes influence evolutionary dynamics (eco-to-evo). More recently, we have started to explore the reciprocal arrow of causality: how evolutionary changes influence ecological dynamics (evo-to-eco). We conduct work on both arrows of causality in multiple natural systems, most frequently in lake versus stream stickleback, high-predation versus low-predation guppies, and Darwin’s finches.

"Long before having arrived at this part of my work, a crowd of difficulties will have occurred to the reader. Some of them are so grave that to this day I can never reflect on them without being staggered; but, to the best of my judgment, the greater number are only apparent, and those that are real are not, I think, fatal...." (Darwin 1859)
