Isabela Hernández Rodriguez
Isabela joined the lab in 2023 as a PhD student. She is broadly interested in the patterns of microclimatic niche use, and how these relate to evolutionary pathways of hydric and thermal diversity. For her PhD, Isabela plans to compare the ecomorphology, macrohabitat and behavioral features of anole lizards and eleutherodactylid frogs to explore the patterns of thermal and hydric regulation through a combination of laboratory studies, experiments and observations in the field to elucidate the mechanisms that shape rates of physiological evolution in these radiations.
