About the Tucker Lab 

As Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Curator in the Museum of Zoology at the University of Michigan I study aspects of mammalian diversification, in particular, the genetic/genomic underpinnings of the species boundary.  Using genetic and genomic tools, my graduate students study a variety of topics with a focus on mammals. These include dispersal dynamics of rodents in tropical agroecosystems, the recent range expansion of the Virginia opossum and hybridization in a New World monkey.  Read more about our lab group here and our research projects here. My faculty page is located here and information on the UMMZ Division of Mammals is located here.
