Boggs Lab

Research interests of members of the Boggs' lab include evolutionary, functional, and behavioral ecology, with applications to conservation and environmental issues.

We use Lepidoptera as a test system to explore how environmental change and variation affect life history traits, population structure and dynamics, and species interactions over ecological and evolutionary time. Environments vary on multiple spatial and temporal scales. Additionally, both the abiotic and biotic components of the environment may be variable, for example in cases of species’ invasions.
