About the Proctor Lab

**if you are interested in doing research in the Proctor Lab, please check the Prospective Students page to see if there are openings available**

Research in the Proctor Lab is diverse! There are only two rules: you have to work on more than one species at the same time, and at least one of your focal taxa has to be too small to see without using a dissecting scope. Recent research questions include:

  • how do symbiotic annelids affect their freshwater snail hosts?
  • what do feather mites eat?
  • how well do soil mites reflect boreal forest disturbance?
  • do pigeons and their feather lice show similar population genetic structure?
  • does genetic diversity of acanthocephalan parasites of amphipods increase with age of water bodies?Proctor lab at Faculty Club 18 Aug 2017
