Evolutionary developmental biology is often referred to as "Evo-Devo." This area of study seeks to understand how changes in developmental programs have shaped the evolution of morphological diversity.

Areas of Research

Current areas of research at Harvard University's Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology include:

  • The genetic and developmental basis for morphological variation at micro- and macro- evolutionary time scales
  • The evolution and development of the germline
  • Life history and craniofacial evolution in vertebrates
  • The evolution of floral novelty
