Jim Barnett


Jim is interested in how morphology and behaviour evolve in response to multiple (often conflicting) selection pressures. Much of his research focuses on visual ecology, predator-prey dynamics, and the behavioural ecology of amphibians. Jim received his BSc in Zoology from the University of Reading (2008-2011), has a MSc (R) and a PhD from the University of Bristol (2011-2016), held previous postdoctoral positions at McGill University (2016-2018), and joined McMaster University as a postdoc in 2019. Currently, Jim is primarily working on poison frogs and glass frogs to ask questions about polymorphism, transparency, and the evolution of mimicry. More information can be found on his
