Physiological Mechanisms Underlying Behavioral Convergence in Caribbean Lizards

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Monsanto Auditorium Columbia, MO 65211

Speaker: Dr. Michele Johnson

Associate Professor
Department of Biology

San Antonio, Tx

"The Johnson lab group is interested in the ecological factors that influence social behaviors and the physiological mechanisms that underlie those behaviors. Most of the lab’s work uses Caribbean lizards in the genus Anolis, or anoles, but we’re also exploring the diversity of lizards that occur at our local field sites in south-central Texas. We use field observations, laboratory experiments, molecular genetics, neuroendocrine techniques, and comparative methodology to explore behavioral evolution." (source)
