|Title||The evolution of reproductive flexibility in birds|
|Description||Studies of life-history evolution have historically focused on the variation in mean values of traits, and regularly assume fixed reproductive values within species. However, the extent to which individuals can flexibly respond to variation in the environment is as much part of an organism’s evolution as their mean traits, and may even evolve separately. In this project we explore between- and within-specific variation in phenotypic flexibility of birds and assess its adaptability. This project involves compiling, managing, and analysing large datasets and provides opportunities to learn cutting-edge analytical techniques.
