Research in the Ward Lab seeks to understand the proximate and ultimate factors that control variation in animal behavior. Current research in the lab reflects three major research themes; (1) the development of behavior (specifically with respect to embryonic learning, social learning, cognition, and developmental plasticity); (2) sensory ecology and the function and evolution of animal communication systems; and (3) the effects of human-mediated environmental change on individuals, and associated ecological and evolutionary consequences for populations and communities.
