Daniel is a behavioral ecologist interested in how variation in sexually selected traits affects reproductive success and the factors that lead to such variation. Here, Daniel is investigating the effects of temperature on male calls and female responsiveness across populations of Enchenopa binotata treehoppers and the effects of water deprivation on harvestmen mating.

Will began his Ph.D. at SLU in the Fall of 2015 after completing his undergraduate in Biochemistry at the University of Missouri. Here, Will is studying the evolution of complex behaviors, including mutualistic interactions and niche construction, using a variety of ant and plant species as well the treehopper Entylia carinata.
Leticia classen Rodríguez
Letty joined the lab in the Fall of 2017 and is focusing on defensive mechanisms in harvestmen. She is particularly interested in the potential for these vision-poor animals to use visual and other sensory cues in predator detection. Her research interests range from arachnology and entomology to aquatic ecology.
Anthony joined the lab in June 2018. More information on Anthony and his research coming soon!
