P.I.: Borja Milá

Research interests

We study the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain biodiversity, and use phenotypic, genetic and genomic data to infer the evolutionary and demographic history of lineages, investigate the role of selection in divergence and speciation, and explore the genetic basis of adaptive traits.

Research organisms

  • Birds
  • Reptiles
  • Amphibians.
