Robert Lab


The research of my group is broadly focused around ecological and evolutionary physiology of reproduction. We are particularly interested in viviparity, maternal/paternal effects on offspring phenotypes, sex allocation and the physiological and endocrinological basis for the variation in life history. The group uses a multidiscipline approach to question orientated research utilising a diverse range of taxa, including but not limited to reptiles, birds, bats and marsupials.
