Dr. Pearse focuses on developing new tools and methods for evolutionary ecologists, with the hope that species' evolutionary history can tell us something about their present-day ecology. Recently, he has focused on leveraging the theoretical and academic insights of his research to generate concrete, actionable conservation advice.
