Will AndersonI am joining the Taylor Lab to begin work on the examination of a possible hybrid zone between the eastern and western forms of Troglodytes aedon, the House Wren. I am going to be working with the Boulder Chickadee Study and the Denver Museum of Natural Science to obtain samples from the front range as well as from the core ranges of each subspecies. I will use those sequenced genomes to try and infer population structure as well as possible introgression to determine whether a house wren hybrid zone exists along the northern front range.
