The Laboratory of Evolutionary Ecology of Adaptations (LEEA) spans a diversity of areas in evolutionary biology and ecology, with a primary focus on the study of selection as a driver of adaptations. LEEA integrative approach expands into numerous areas, including ecological and sexual interactions, life histories, evolutionary genetics, speciation, macroecology, conservation, and natural history. Members of LEEA work primarily on animal models, including lizards, penguins, humans, and our latest long-term project of evolution in action on fish (NPEA). The research approaches involve field and lab-based studies, under local and large-scale spatial contexts. The LEEA is led by Daniel Pincheira-Donoso.
