Research Interests
John F. Addicott

My research program focuses primarily on the ecology and evolution of the mutualistic interactions between aphids and ants, yuccas and yucca moths, and figs and fig wasps. We study the regulation of costs and benefits, the ecology and evolution of cheating, coevolution between plant and pollinator, and competition for mutualists in these mutualist systems. We also study the impact of environmental division and heterogeneity on ecological process.
