The Althoff Laboratory @ Syracuse University

We are broadly interested in the evolutionary ecology of species interactions. Our research focuses on the interactions among plants, insect herbivores, and insect predators to test how communities are structured both in ecological and evolutionary time.

We are also interested in how species interactions may be instrumental in ecological speciation.

We incorporate molecular ecology, phylogenetics, and behavioral ecology, and travel throughout the southwestern United States and Florida.

We also participate in teaching about the emerging field of Biomimicry.
