My research career began with a study of population dynamics of lizards in the deserts of West Texas. Though later I moved to other fields, I have recurrently returned to questions related to population biology, evolutionary theory, and ecological adaptations. Thus, ecology and evolution are the oldest and longest theme in my history as a scientist. My major contributions to this field include:
