Short presentation

I started my PhD with Anna Qvarnström in 2013, working on Ficedula flycatchers on Öland. I am interested in the role metabolic rate plays in the process of speciation. Previous work has shown that collared and pied flycatchers have different life history strategies, where collared flycatchers trade hardiness for increased competitive ability. My PhD focuses on the role that metabolic rate plays in these life history strategies, and how these differences contribute to the speciation process.
