The Laboratory of Evolutionary Ecology of Adaptations (LEEA) spans a broad diversity of areas in evolutionary biology and ecology, with a primary focus on the study of selection as a driver of adaptations. The integrative approach of the lab expands into numerous areas, including ecological and sexual interactions, life history adaptations, evolutionary genetics, speciation, phylogenetics, macroecology, systematics and natural history. Members of LEEA work primarily on animal model systems, mostly lizards, although other organisms are part of the current and past research. The research approaches involve short and long-term studies conducted both in the field and the lab, under local and large-scale spatial contexts. The LEEA is led by Daniel Pincheira-Donoso.
