Research interests include genotype by environment interactions, particularly in the context of speciation studies and conservation genetics; utilizes population and quantitative genetics, genetic mapping, functional genomics, behavioural ecology and physiology.

Founding Editor

Michelle Tseng
Founding Editor

Michelle employs empirical studies of insects and their pathogens to examine how environmental heterogeneity mediates the outcome of species interactions at ecological and evolutionary scales.

Associate EditorScott Carroll
Associate Editor

Studies basic and applied aspects of evolutionary biology. Scott uses observational and experimental approaches to address questions in evolutionary conservation biology, contemporary evolution, and adaptation to global change.

Associate EditorBernard J Crespi
Associate Editor

Integrates genetic, ecological and phylogenetic approaches to ask questions on the evolution of social behaviour, the evolution of human health and disease, the evolution of placentation and maternal-fetal conflict, the evolution of trophic interactions, and the roles of genetics, ecology and geography in speciation and adaptive radiation.

Associate EditorArnaud Estoup
Associate Editor

Addresses questions pertaining to the population genetics and evolutionary biology of non-equilibrium species; is particularly interested in the development and application of methods for historical inference based on molecular markers and the evolution of life history traits in the context of biological invasions.

Associate EditorDylan Fraser
Associate Editor

Combines field and experimental approaches with quantitative and molecular genetics to study how population diversity arises, evolves and/or persists in the face of habitat fragmentation, harvesting, depletion, hybridization and climate change.

Associate EditorZach Gompert
Associate Editor

Zach is interested in population and evolutionary genetics and genomics. In particular, he studies the genetic basis and evolution of ecologically important traits and barriers to gene flow between species. His research combines manipulative experiments, analysis of DNA sequence data from natural populations, and computational statistics.

Associate EditorAndrew Hendry
Associate Editor

Uses a range of study systems, including stickleback, guppies, finches and salmon to investigate how ecological changes influence evolutionary dynamics, and vice versa, how evolutionary changes influence ecological dynamics. Andrew recently co-edited a special issue in Evolutionary Applications on evolutionary perspectives of salmonid conservation and management.

Associate EditorRees Kassen
Associate Editor

Uses microbes as models for understanding the origins and fate of biodiversity. Rees's interest span both fundamental problems of adaptation and diversification as well as more applied problems such as the evolution of microbial pathogens and antibiotic resistance.

Associate Editor (Research Highlights and Social Media)Britt Koskella
Associate Editor (Research Highlights and Social Media)

Combines experimental evolution and studies of natural populations to explore ecology and evolution of infectious disease, including coevolutionary interactions among phage viruses, bacterial pathogens, and plants. Britt uses this three-way interaction both as a model system and to explore the use of phages as an alternative to antibiotics in agriculture.

IOIsabelle Olivieri
Associate Editor

Mathematical modelling from demographic and evolutionary perspectives, evolutionary interpretations based on molecular phylogenies, conservation and invasion evolutionary biology, life-history evolution, coevolution, population genetics data analyses, speciation processes.

Associate EditorCraig Primmer
Reviews Editor

Investigates genetic processes underlying adaptation and speciation; applies research to developing conservation and management guidelines for a wide range of endangered and exploited organisms, including fishes, amphibians and birds.

Associate EditorAndrew Read
Associate Editor

Andrew's group works on the ecology and evolution of infectious disease. Andrew uses experimental and mathematical approaches to address a range of topics including virulence and infectiousness, adaptation to new hosts, vaccine failure and insecticide resistance.

Associate EditorOuti Savolainen
Associate Editor

Studies genetic basis and population genomics of climatic adaptation in forest tree populations and in Arabidopsis, especially the outcrossing Arabidopsis lyrata. The work is related to also to tree breeding and genetics of adaptation to climate change. Recently, she also has an interest in the genetics of speciation, especially in incipient reproductive isolation between diverged population of Arabidopsis lyrata. Savolainen

Associate EditorPete Thrall
Associate Editor

Addresses questions pertaining to the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of host–microbe interactions in natural systems; investigations include the role of genetic diversity in host resistance and pathogen infectivity in disease epidemics.

Associate EditorFrédéric Thomas
Associate Editor

Research interests include ecology and Evolution of host-parasite relationships, ecology of health, evolutionary medicine especially cancer and behavioural ecology.
