Karl Gotthard: Home

I am working as researcher and associate professor (docent) at the Department of Zoology, Stockholm University and my research is financed by the Swedish Research Council (VR) and by the strategic research programme EkoKlim at Stockholm University. I am also Coordinator of the graduate school in biology, see website.

My research is mainly been concerned with life history evolution and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity, using different species of butterflies as model systems. I have also worked on the evolution of host plant use in Chrysomelid beetles. Currently I am concentrating on the evolution of body size, developmetal plasticity and thermal reaction norms in insects but I am also continuing my research on the evolution of growth strategies and host plant use. You may find a more exstensive description of my past and present research under the research link.
