A Professor of Ecology at Yale’s Environment School, David Skelly is interested in animal ecology, conservation and management. His studies of amphibians are directed at determining the causes of patterns such as evolution, and the extinction and establishment of populations. Professor Skelly talks about rapid evolution – the idea that evolution can keep pace with environmental change.
