Michael Moore

Michael Moore is a biologist with expertise in the evolution of animal life cycles and mating interactions. His research is revealing the ways in which animals adapt to living in different habitats across their life cycles. Michael has studied a diverse suite of animals in regions across the United States including amphibians, fish, dragonflies, and ladybugs. Collaborating with Drs. Kasey Fowler-Finn (Saint Louis University) and Kim Medley (Tyson Research Center), Michael will explore how animal breeding colors adapt to warmer climates. This research will help biologists understand factors responsible for the global diversity of animal color patterns and should provide insight into how these captivating traits will respond to the climates of the future.
