Welcome to the Funk Lab

We strive to understand the evolutionary and ecological mechanisms that generate and maintain biological diversity using population genomics, experimental manipulations, and field studies. Our goal is to not only test basic evolutionary and ecological theory, but also directly inform policy and management decisions that will ultimately determine the fate of biodiversity.

Funk Lab hosts first ever Northern Range Conservation workshop at the “Cocoa Palace” in Brasso Seco Village, Trinidad!

DSC_0032Mike, Sarah, Chris, and Dale Chris, Sarah Fitzpatrick, and Dale Broder hosted the first ever Northern Range Conservation workshop at the “Cocoa Palace” in Brasso Seco Village in May 2013. We had a great turn out from collaborators like Mike Rutherford from the University of the West Indies at St. Augustine (UWI) and Kelly Fitzjames from Brasso Seco. Great ideas were shared and priorities were outlined for biodiversity research in Trinidad. The jerk chicken was delicious as well! This outreach is part of our guppy gene flow project.
