Hope Klug co-teaches UHON 3560 - Topics in Natural Science: Controversies in Science. In her own research, she studies mating systems, social interaction, and parental effort and their links to patterns of sexual selection, life-history, and the ways in which the environment shapes the evolution of different sexes. She is particularly focused on the selective pressures that give rise to different mating systems, patterns of sexual selection, and behavior. In practice, she uses a combination of field and laboratory observation, manipulative experiments, and mathematical modeling to advance and test theory.
