Bonett’s, Ph.D., research focuses on understanding the influence of ecology and life cycle mode on the development and evolution of animal form and function. The timing of amphibian development appears to be largely governed by the hormones, therefore we also conduct experiments to test how hormones regulate patterns of gene expression and development. We emphasize a comparative approach by analyzing patterns among populations and species to understand how the evolution of endocrine mechanisms has shaped developmental variation in nature.
