Dr Daniel Pincheira-Donoso
Dr Pincheira-Donoso's research combines a number of theoretical and empirical approaches, and encompasses a range of fields, including selection theory, the ecological and genetic basis of adaptive evolution and speciation, macroecology, climate change biology and more recently, conservation.
To address these problems, Daniel has primarily employed global-scale datasets on amphibians and reptiles as model systems. Likewise, his field-based programmes of research have focused on the study of lizards from South America (mostly Liolaemids).Find out more
