I am a biologist who researches the physiology, ecology, and evolution of reproductive mechanisms in animals. I am interested in these topics both because they are important basic science questions, and also because understanding how animals reproduce is important for conservation. The success or failure of reproduction by individual animals is a determining factor in the growth or decline of populations as a whole. Thus, understanding how animals reproduce given the environments in which they live is necessary in order to predict how they will respond to environmental change, especially as a result of human activities.
