    About This Project

    Most of the species on earth are in the tropics, but where did all this biodiversity come from? We want to study how certain landscape features contribute to evolutionary diversification in a tropical savannah. By comparing populations of cockroaches across the savannah we can understand the forces driving their evolution. Why cockroaches? There are a huge diversity (>4500 species) of cockroaches globally and we know almost nothing about them.
