Daniel Papaj

Professor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Joint appointments in Entomology, Neuroscience and Psychology

Dr. Papaj studies the behavioral ecology of insects in the context of coevolved interactions. His lab has a strong focus on insect-plant interactions, including pollination ecology.  Much of the work addresses the role of behavioral flexibility (learning) by the insect.
