My primary research interest is the study and evaluation of evolutionary processes and we work mostly on reptile and frog systems because they are the animals I know the most about. My research interests and those of the group are quite broad. We 'concentrate' on four main research areas: molecular phylogenetics at all scales, comparative evolutionary biology, behavioural and molecular ecology, and natural history and conservation biology. Of course there is overlap between these research themes, particularly in some of the molecular methods used to tackle questions. What we do in each of these areas are described on my lab web site and have a look through our publications to get a better feel for what my group does.

- Possibly the greatest achievement of our lab - our work on sexual deception in African flat lizards was featured on the 'Colbert Report' in segment called 'When animals attack our morals.'

Polyploidy is rare in animals, and most polyploid animals reproduce asexually.

Current patterns of biodiversity, whether its species richness or phenotypic diversity, need to be understood in the context of the past.
Over geological time, the earth’s surface and climate have changed, rearranging continental plates and oscillating between a hothouse and snowglobe
