Pablo Lavinia and Darío Lijtmaer on flatbill and tanager evolution

Pablo Lavinia and Darío Lijtmaer visited the Fuller Evolutionary Biology lab in 2016 and 2018 to work on various projects. This phylogeographic study on the Large-headed Flatbill (Ramphotrigon megacephalum) and the Fawn-breasted Tanager (Pipraeidea melanonota) explores how species with different ecologies have responded to environmental barriers in the Neotropics.
