Photos: guppy colour diversity within and between sites – each photograph is of five males from a given site.
Our guppy work is following three different lines of investigation. First, we investigate how natural selection, gene flow, and adaptation interact in natural populations. Second, we investigate how adaptive divergence leads to the evolution of reproductive isolation through mate choice experiments in the laboratory. Third, we examine host-parasite co-evolutionary dynamics in guppies, and the resulting consequences for community and ecosystem level processes.
