About Erik Verheyen

BAP in the Department of Biology, Evolutionary Ecology Group since 2008. 

Staff Researcher at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) in Brussels, Belgium. 

My research focusses one how past climatic and tectonic changes have shaped the evolutionary histories of vertebrates occurring in some of the main aquatic and terrestrial habitats of sub-Sahara Africa. The used detailed phylogeographical approach contributes to the unraveling of the evolutionary histories of these faunas, facilitates the biodiversity inventory of these often poorly documented vertebrate faunas, and allows to study the speciation mechanisms that generated fascinating species assemblages.
