Bolund lab: Sexual dimorphism in life-histories

[Page still under construction, for more info, please, visit http://bolund.wix.com/homepage]

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in questions related to the life-history and behaviour of living organisms. My aims can be broadly divided into three overlapping categories. First, to figure out how and why different life-histories evolve. Second, to study the genetic underpinnings of life-history and behavioural traits, and how this genetic basis of complex traits interacts with the environment and change over time. Third, to investigate how sexual selection and sexual conflict shape the evolution of organisms. I use a variety of methods and study systems to address these questions.
