Andrew P. Hendry

Andrew Hendry is a Professor at McGill University. He was an early proponent of the importance of contemporary (rapid) evolution in nature – and its effects on ecological patterns and processes. He studies these eco-evolutionary dynamics in theory and in natural systems, including guppies in Trinidad, Darwin’s finches in Galapagos, and threespine stickleback in North America.

 

With respect to urban evolution, he has shown that growing human populations in Galapagos have changed the diets of local Darwin’s finches, which has led to a reversal of speciation.​​​
