**Welcome to the Dantzer Lab Wiki!**
We are an Ecology, Evolution, and Physiology Animal Behavior Lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan.
Our research group is guided by the idea that a greater understanding of natural systems can lead to insights into a number of fundamental questions in animal behavior, ecology, and evolution. Our major focus is on understanding the evolutionary and physiological mechanisms that enable wild animals to cope with environmental change as well as the ultimate and proximate causes of variation in behavioral and life history traits.
We study many different research questions but we focus on those that integrate animal behavior, evolution, ecology, and physiology. We also commit to putting in the work to make academia and science a more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive environment.
**If you are new to the lab, please read through the whole Wiki and revisit it once a year.**
We want your feedback so please help us make this a dynamic document by adding more information or details.
