Physiology & Functional Morphology

Areas of research and study in physiology and functional morphology span invertebrate and vertebrate organisms with the following foci: behavioral and structural specializations of dominance in ant communities and castes in social insects; the biomechanics of locomotion and aggressive behavior in terrestrial vertebrates; evolutionary transitions in the vertebrate cardiopulmonary system; neural mechanisms of communication in vertebrates; and vocal behavior and mechanics of sound production in birds.
