Ord Lab
Behaviour and Evolution
UNSW | Sydney, Australia

Research in the lab focuses on the evolution of behaviour
with an emphasis on animal communication. Topics include the
adaptive significance of behaviour, social networks, phenotypic plasticity,
factors promoting macroevolutionary divergence in behaviour and the
origin of novel forms of behaviour. Study organisms are selected
based on the conceptual question being addressed
and currently include lizards, fish and insects.
