Dr. Lindsay’s research interests are broadly focused on studies of evolution, animal behavior and conservation, incorporating data gathered from molecular genetic methods and detailed field studies. He is interested in evolutionary theory and its application to animal behavior, molecular evolution and conservation. Dr. Lindsay’s research work has predominantly focused on studies of genetics and behavior of Holarctic birds, but students and collaborators work on varied taxa like deer, ticks, black flies and parasites.
Dr. Lindsay teaches introductory courses (Intro to Biology - Principles), mid-level courses for majors (Intro to Cell and Molecular Biology, Conservation Biology) and non-majors (Ecology of the Northern Forest), advanced courses for majors (Evolution, Genetics, Ornithology) and graduate students (Systematics, Conservation Genetics, Graduate Seminar). He also regularly mentors students in courses of individualized content (Field Experience, Lab Experience, Directed Studies, Research) and leads students on an intensive course in Africa (Field Studies of Zambia).
