Robert Dr. Bradley's research interests include systematics and molecular evolution in mammals; particularly in geomyoid and cricetid rodents. Examination of hybrid zones between genetically distinct taxa; including isolating mechanisms and the dynamics of genetic introgression. Determining the origin of hybrizymes generated from 2 hybridization events. Chromosomal evolution and how changes in chromosome structure relate to models and mechanisms of speciation.

Caleb D. Phillips

Curator of Genetic Resources, Natural Science Research Laboratory, Museum of TTU
Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Texas Tech University

Bio | Email

The Phillips laboratory studies metagenomic and genomic evolution underlying mammalian adaptations. Owing to the diversity and uniqueness of bats, most of our current projects utilize chiropteran systems. Read more

Nancy E. McIntyre

Curator of Birds, Natural Science Research Laboratory, Museum of TTU
Professor, Landscape and Community Ecology, Department of Biological Sciences, Texas Tech University

Bio | Email

Nancy E. McIntyre's research interests include landscape ecology and community ecology in grasslands and urban ecosystems. More specific interests focus on the effects of anthropogenic changes to the environment (especially agriculture and urbanization, the two dominant forms of human land use) on the abundance, diversity, and long-term viability of animals.

Richard D. Stevens

Assistant Curator of Mammals, Natural Science Research Laboratory, Museum of TTU
Professor, Department of Natural Resources Management, Texas Tech University

Bio Email

Richard Stevens' research interests lie at the intersection of community ecology, macroecology, and biogeography but are grounded in collections-based research. Part of his work examines the basic community ecology of bats and rodents in Paraguay, California, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas, in particular the effects of species environment interactions, dispersal, seasonality and competition on the structure of communities. Read more
