Eco-evolutionary Dynamics

After seven years in preparation, my book is out. You can find it in various places, such as Princeton University Press,, and

Eco-evolutionary dynamics work both ways: (1) contemporary ecological dynamics shaping contemporary evolution, and (2) contemporary evolution shaping ecological dynamics. Most of our research to date has focused on the first part of this interaction (eco-to-evo), and so I won’t list those papers here (they appear elsewhere throughout this webpage). I will instead list some of our efforts most closely focused on the second part of the interaction (evo-to-eco).
