Animal Communication • Physiology • Ecology

hi fidelity

Welcome. We are a group of organismal biologists exploring the interface of the inner & outer worlds of animals—where von Uexküll’s Umwelt meets Grinnell’s ecological niche. We integrate data from brains, behavior, physiology, & ecology to explore the organism from different perspectives. Current projects focus on how species interactions influence acoustic communication systems in rodents, a group of animals with underappreciated voices.

General topics of interest: Acoustic communication, behavioral endocrinology, cognitive ecology, mammalogy, Mexican borderlands, niche differentiation, species interactions
