Male pregnancy is a phenomena that characterizes the family Syngnathidae (seahorses, sea dragons and pipefish). I have been interested in various subjects such as sexual selection, cannibalism, how latitude (as a proxy for temperature) can shape allometric growth and more. To address these topics I have been using a huge variety of Syngnathidae species. During this talk I will be walking you through my work during the last 5 years.
