About - The Lawing Lab
Welcome to the Lawing Lab website! We use methods and models from modern evolutionary biology combined with evidence from the fossil record to inform our understanding of how species and communities respond to environmental change through time. Our work includes the investigation of geographic, evolutionary, and morphological responses of both species and communities to environmental changes in the past, present, and future. We are involved in developing and combining methods such as species distribution modeling (SDMs), geometric morphometrics (GMs), and phylogenetic comparative methods (PCMs).
