The Santana Lab research integrates studies of the morphology, performance, behavior and ecology of mammals to understand the processes that drive their diversification. Their work involves collection of data in the field from free-ranging animals, including bite force and feeding behavior, along with lab techniques to study morphology and function, such as micro-CT scanning, laser scanning, dissections, geometric morphometrics, biomechanical modeling, finite element analyses, and phylogenetic comparative methods.

Seminar Title: From molecules to clades: Integrative studies of bat diversification
