About Sean Lema

My research examines how environmental variation shapes animals’ phenotypes in the wild by linking hormonal mechanism with behavioral and ecological outcomes. Animals respond to changes in their environments – whether physical, social or chemical – via shifts in hormonal signaling, which ultimately mediate behavioral and developmental responses. Students in my laboratory use integrative and comparative experimental approaches to investigate how hormonal mechanisms generate phenotypic variation in free-ranging animals, and explore the importance of those mechanisms for basic questions in evolutionary biology and behavioral ecology, as well as for emerging problems in animal conservation, including how chemical pollutants in the environment can impact wildlife health by disrupting hormonal signaling.
