About Dean C. Adams

My research focuses on the evolution of the multivariate phenotype. I am interested in understanding micro- and macroevolutionary patterns of phenotypic diversification, and the historical and ecological processes that are responsible for them. I use a phylogenetic comparative evolutionary framework to attain these goals, directing our empirical work towards vertebrates, with an emphasis on plethodontid salamanders. I also develop new theoretical and analytical approaches for quantifying the multivariate phenotype, and for elucidating patterns of phenotypic evolution and change.
