In the Tseng lab we investigate the evolutionary and ecological processes underlying adaptation to changing environments. We test ecological and evolutionary theory using laboratory and field experiments with freshwater communities, and with insects and their parasites. Our goal is to build a predictive framework for understanding how communities adapt to rapid environmental change. See more here.
