Lesley T. Lancaster, Ph.D.

I am broadly interested in understanding the factors that promote and maintain and diversity, and have examined this relationship in a variety of systems, from adaptations maintaining polymorphic strategies in animals, to biogeographic and molecular causes of species diversification in plants. My current research project investigates the evolution of range limits in socially-polymorphic damselflies, and I am also interested in how properties of the social environment and population contribute to individual life history decisions and fitness, population stability, colonization ability, and niche breadth.


I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist.
