Phenotypic Adaptability, Variation and Evolution Research Group

PAVE is an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. Our research aims to understand the ways in which the human phenotype adapts to environmental variation throughout the life course. Biological variation can reflect either the natural or behavioural environment of the individual, through natural selection or plasticity in development and maintenance of the organism. We're interested in the ways in which these mechanisms produce variation within our species and among earlier human and hominin populations, and the evolution of this variation through time
