Henry M. Wilbur

BFD Runk Professor of Biology
Professor of Environmental Sciences
University of Virginia

Henry Wilbur’s group studies population and community ecology from an evolutionary perspective. Most of us are experimental ecologists, but some projects also involve parameter estimation in unmanipulated populations. We all work in the field and base our research programs on general concepts in the theory of evolutionary ecology, but we do our work with a solid foundation in natural history. Graduate students design their own projects and generally work independently of Professor Wilbur. Nearly all recent students have conducted their research at Mountain Lake Biological Station, a facility of the University of Virginia, where we spend our summers.
