Research

Overview

Lewis Lab research has provided many insights into firefly behavior, ecology and evolution.  Our current work focuses on applying this knowledge through global efforts to protect these beloved luminous creatures. In collaboration with international scientists, we identify key threats to fireflies in different regions, we determine which species are most at-risk, and we then work with local agencies on plans to protect endangered species and their habitats.
