In some cases, outbreeding may have resulted in greater ecotypic
variation and the role of host identity in the spread of an invasive herbivore, Cactoblastis cactorum.
Rapid evolution of ecotypic
differentiation in steelhead/rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
differentiation in the grasshopper Chorthippus brunneus: life history varies in relation to climate.
differentiation in Medicago polymorpha along an environmental gradient in central Chile.
variation and predatory behavior of killer whales (Orcinus orca) in the eastern Aleutian Islands, Alaska.
Sunshine Vetiver population may not respond uniformly to N fertility treatments due to genetic variations.
variation and predatory behavior among killer whales (Orcinus orca) off the eastern Aleutian Islands, Alaska.
So we measured the noise-reducing spectrum of several plant species, compared the influences of different noise frequencies, and examined the characteristics of the foliage for noise reduction by creating a general ecotypic
sound barrier made up of several plant species.

variation in the context of global climate change: revisiting the rules.
differentiation in the marine diatom Skeletonema costatum: influence of light intensity on the photosynthetic apparatus.
The project exploits these ecotypes and variations to give students an opportunity to explore ecotypic
differentiation and speciation as a scientific hypothesis.
