Welcome to the Price Lab.
Current Lab news
05/02/2015 – Natasha and Trevor recently came out with publications in Molecular Ecology and the American Naturalist! If you’re curious about opsin evolution in warblers or about a review of an important but little-read paper by Huxley (1938), check them out under the Publications tab.

11/11/14 – Jon Kennedy, a PhD student at the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate at the University of Copenhagen visits the Price lab for a month. His research interests include historical biogeography and macroevolution of birds. He continues his long-standing collaboration with the lab, researching the underlying causes of the latitudinal gradient among New World passerines. Welcome back, Jon!
09/26/14 – Shane and Daniel gave great talks at the American Ornithologists’ Union meeting in Estes Park, CO.
