Research Focus

"My research interests focus on the agonistic (aggressive and submissive) behavior of reptiles and amphibians in relation to territorial defense and sexual selection.  I am also interested in behavioral and ecological responses of reptiles and amphibians to stochastic (random) environmental changes."
