Heterochrony Project

Filed under: Students — wallscheffler @ 22:49

Heterochrony is the study of differential timing of development, particularly from an evolutionary perspective. I have a group of students working on this project in order to better understand how slowing development might play a role in island dwarfism. Recently my students won an award for best oral presentation at a regional research conference. With my collaborator Dr Eric Long (far left), the students are (from left) Brendan McMillen, Karissa Courtney, and Julia Lippert. Trevor Hildebrand is not pictured here.
