MPFMy research is broadly based on a modified morphology-->performance-->fitness paradigm where behavior serves an intermediate role between form and function, and natural selection and fitness. Behavior is both constrained by the functional abilities of the organism, and malleable in that an organism can choose to alter the broader selective environment in which it lives (the selective regime). By examining behavior in the broader context of the selective environment (e.g., where an organism lives) we can gain valuable insight about the evolution of form and function.
