Eileen Lacey's lab is based in the Museum of Vetebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley. The common theme that unites the lab is an interest in vertebrate social behavior and population biology. Within this general framework, research conducted by lab members covers a wide variety of taxa and topics. Field studies of behavior represent a critical component of all projects. Current research by lab members involves field work in Argentina , Australia, central California, and the Sierra Mountains of California; past work has taken place in Brazil and Panama. Most lab members also make use of the facilities available in the MVZ's Laboratory for Evolutionary Genetics to conduct molecular analyses of parentage, kinship,or population structure.
