Corrie Moreau lab

The Moreau lab focuses on the symbiotic factors that drive speciation, adaptation, and evolutionary diversification.  Much of the research in the lab focuses on the potential co-evolution of ants and their gut-associated bacteria to understand the diversity and putative function of host-associated microbes.  By coupling this information with data on diet, trophic ecology, evolutionary history and biogeography, we hope to gain a better understanding of how these intimate interactions influence patterns of biological diversity.
