Eileen A. Lacey

Professor
Department of Integrative Biology
Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (Curator of Mammals)

Porfessor Lacey research program explores the evolution of behavioral diversity among vertebrates, with emphasis on studies of mammals. Specifically, by combining field studies of behavior, ecology, and demography with molecular genetic analyses of kinship and population structure, I seek to identify the causes and consequences of variation in mammalian social behavior.
