EEB Thursday Seminar - Hybrid: Mechanisms of behavioral evolution: lessons from poison frogs

Eva K Fischer, Assistant Professor, LEAP Scholar, Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior, School of Integrative Biology, UIUC
Thursday, February 23, 2023
3:00-4:00 PM
1010 Biological Sciences Building Map
Our weekly seminar series featuring internal and external speakers in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology. This seminar will be in-person and livestreaming on Zoom (link this page).

Research in our lab asks how nervous systems can be both strikingly flexible and remarkably robust, and how these phenomena simultaneously give rise to widespread similarities and incredible diversity in behavior. We use integrative approaches to address these questions across levels of biological organization and timescales, using charismatic frogs as a model system. The talk will provide a conceptual framework as well as data-driven background for ongoing projects in the lab, exploring mechanisms of inter- and intra-specific variation in parental behavior and juvenile aggression in poison frogs.
