Developmental biology of spadefoot polyphenism
I am investigating how the developmental programme of a typical omnivorous, spadefoot tadpole is modified to produce the carnivorous, cannibal phenotype. My research encompasses studies of morphometrics, histology, and gene expression to understand developmental modification at the different hierarchical levels and how they fit together in an integrative manner.
