The SalGo Team explores the drivers that diversify and constrained life history strategies in animals and plants. We use a broad repertoire of analytical tools (biochemical assays of oxidative damage, ecophysiological tests of stress, field experimental manipulations, long-term demographic censuses, phylogenetic comparative analyses) and data (e.g. individual level records, big data, simulations) to test theories from life history evolution.
A particular point of interest in the SalGo Team is the forces that result in species being able to escape from senescence, and the relationship between functional trait variation and life history trait variation worldwide.
