Witt Lab

Biology & Evolution of Birds


We are a research team working on a variety of questions about bird evolution, genomes, and ecology. Museum specimens, including frozen tissue samples, are a common theme in our approach to science, and we strive to build museum collections through our research.


We are affiliated with the Division of Birds at the Museum of Southwestern Biology, part of the UNM Department of Biology. Together with the labs of Mike Andersen and Blair Wolf, we are UNM Ornithology.
