About Scott Everet Baird
My focus is on natural history, morphological evolution, and speciation genetics in the nematode genus Caenorhabditis. In particular, I am interested in developmental constraint and the evolution of adaptive gene complexes. Recent projects include characterizations of nematode-isopod associations, the evolution of caudal papillae pattern in male nematodes, and characterizations of post-zygotic reproductive isolation mechanisms in various combinations of Caenorhabditis species.
