To study the ecological and evolutionary processes responsible for the adaptations present in vertebrates and how these adaptations can mediate with environment and history, establishing patterns in the geographical distribution of biodiversity. To examine questions over a wide range of spatio-temporal scales, including biotic interactions, geographic distribution, occupation and abundance patterns, co-evaluation, sexual selection, behavior, bioacoustics, evolution of characters, and conservation.
