Research and Teaching Interests:

  • Evolutionary ecology, developmental plasticity, maternal effects, and phenotypic selection in reptiles (specifically lizards and turtles). The Warner Lab uses integrative approaches to examine interactions between organisms and their environments at several different levels of organization and across multiple life-history stages (from embryos to adults).

 Research in our lab focuses on evolution, ecology, behavior, and physiology.

Research in the Warner Lab:

  • Developmental plasticity and egg physiological ecology
  • Adaptive significance of parental effects
  • Phenotypic selection and experimental evolution in the wild
  • Evolutionary ecology of temperature-dependent sex determination
  • Urban adaptation and invasion biology

Subject area:

  • Behavior, Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Core.
