The Lab


Established in 1998, biological anthropologists at the Yale Reproductive Ecology Laboratory (YREL) conduct research on the evolutionary biology of humans and non-human primates.  We are particularly interested in the evolutionary biology of key life history traits such as reproduction, growth, aging, immune function, and behavioral ecology.
