Stuart Graham is getting his masters through the Erasmus Mundus Master Program in Evolutionary Biology. He is visiting our lab for six months to conduct research on pollinator behavior. He’ll be leading the field expedition to Texas this year.

The Hopkins Lab was awarded a Milton Fund grant. This award will support our work investigating how and why butterflies are behaving the way they do while foraging on Phlox. We will be investigating if pollinators learn and how this learning influences pollen movement and speciation in Phlox.
Shayla will be studying interactions between Cycads and their pollinators.
Sevan Suni joins the lab. Sevan joins the lab as a postdoctoral fellow and will be investigating the genetics of reinforcement and the role of hybridization in adaptive introgression.
Current Biology paper, Hopkins&Rausher_2014. Fun write up in the Harvard Gazette and thanks Daniel Matute and Daniel Ortiz-Barrientos for the great Dispatch in Current Biology.
Welcome to the world Riley Hopkins Desmarais!
As a postdoc in the lab, Federico will be investigating the genomic signatures of reinforcement and the evolution of self-incompatibility.
We used common garden field experiments and pollinator observation experiments to measure selection on flower color variation. [Hopkins & Rausher 2014]
