Evolutionary ecology, aposematism and color mimicry in insects


Dr. Wilson is broadly interested in the history and future of biodiversity and in the biotic and abiotic drivers of evolution, with a particular emphasis on aposematism, color mimicry, and arthropod conservation. Much of his research has been focused on understanding diversification and patterns of biodiversity in desert-adapted bees and wasps.
