Reproductive Ecology and Behavioral Endocrinology Lab

The Reproductive Ecology and Behavioral Endocrinology Lab (REBEL) at Washington University in St Louis focuses on variation in hormones, behaviors, and reproduction in a variety of primates. By combining ecological, behavioral, hormonal, and genetic data, the lab addresses questions of how individuals adjust to different social and ecological conditions to maintain fitness. These conditions include exposure to diseases, habitat degradation, and beyond. Ultimately, the lab aims to inform broad questions in evolution and conservation.
