The Laboratory of Evolutionary Ecology of Adaptations (LEEA) is part of the School of Life Sciences, University of Lincoln. Research in LEEA spans a broad diversity of areas in evolutionary biology and ecology, with a primary focus on the study of the causes and consequences of selection as a driver of adaptations. The integrative approach of the lab expands into numerous areas of major significance for the study of evolutionary ecology, including ecological and sexual interactions, life history adaptations, evolutionary genetics, phylogenetics, macroecology, cognition, systematics and natural history. Members of LEEA work primarily on animal model systems, in particular 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.
