Humans affect virtually all ecosystems on Earth, potentially influencing organismal ecology and evolution at many levels. The relationships between humans and animals take many forms and span a wide range of intensities, from anthropophily, e.g. in urban wildlife, to intensive husbandry, e.g. in farm animals and pets. How human proximity affects the morphology of these animals, and at what level, is a thriving area of research. In this talk, I will summarise some of our recent collaborative work that contributes to our knowledge of human impacts on animal evolution and ecology.
