Personal profile

University profile

The fundamental mechanism of natural selection is differential reproduction: selection favors individuals that reproduce better than others. Dr. Kight is interested in understanding how and why animals make decisions about this critical biological event. Generally using invertebrate animals as model species, Dr. Kight and his students investigate why some animals take care of their young (when most species do not) and when/why these caregivers decide to stop investing in offspring. Sometimes these questions require understanding how animals interact with other species, such as predators. Dr. Kight and his students are currently turning their attention to how reproductive decisions are related to ecological competition between invasive and native species.
