Dr. Pierotti's research investigates the evolutionary biology of vertebrates with male parental care and socially monogamous breeding systems.

I collect data on individual variation in behavioral and ecological aspects of parental care. My primary question is how an individual organism becomes successful at reproduction and contributes to future generations. My research focuses on two genera of monogamous vertebrates: the avian genus Larus (gulls), and the mammalian genus Canis (wolves, coyotes, dogs).
