Robert Latta’s main research focus is to understand the genetic basis of fitness variation in natural populations. He has been intrigued by the Avena barbata system ever since reading the original studies as an undergraduate, and adopted it as a study system in which RILs could be easily created. Other aspects of this work address the role of genetic correlations, hybridization and recombination, dominance and epistasis, phenotypic plasticity, physiological ecology and transgressive segregation in determining the fitness and niche breadth of genotypes.
