Welcome to the Taylor Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder. Research in the Taylor Lab applies genomics and field experiments to natural hybrid zones and closely related taxa in order to investigate the genetic architecture of reproductive isolation—the hallmark of speciation—and the genetic bases of traits relevant to speciation. This research also provides insight into the impacts of anthropogenic change, including climate change, on species distributions, interactions, and evolution.
