Phil Allman


I am an organismal biologist with research interests in evolutionary biology, ecology, and conservation biology.  Specifically, I am interested in the evolution of life history traits and how these traits influence individual fitness and population trends.  I use a variety of field-based techniques such as mark-recapture to better understand the behavior of reptile and amphibian populations in southwest Florida.  Additionally, I have an active field site in Ghana (West Africa) where I am working with local authorities and non-profit organizations to better understand sea turtle population threats and recovery strategies for the region.
