Mark Alan McPeek
David T. McLaughlin Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences
I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist. I use both empirical and theoretical approaches to understand the ecological processes that determine the distributions and abundances of organisms today and that shaped the adaptation and diversification of these organisms in the past. I try to integrate ideas, data, and approaches from various disciplines, including population and community ecology, population genetics, molecular systematics, comparative biology, macroevolution, and paleontology.
