Sex and sperm wars: the behavioural component of infertility

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Why is infertility so common? From both evolutionary and mechanistic perspectives, infertility remains a puzzle. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Anticipating emerging pest species on a global scale

Prediction of emerging crop pests remains a high priority objective in the 21st century, as the redistribution of both insects and crop species continue around the world, under both human-assisted dispersal and warming processes. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Using spider venoms to develop novel, safer, insecticides for crop protection

For protecting crops, neonicotinoids have become the most widely used class of insecticides in the world. However, their use has been restricted in the European Union amidst fears that they are having adverse effects on pollinators such as the honey bee, Apis mellifera. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more

EASTBIO Prenatal influences on brain health and function

The prenatal environment has a profound effect on the development of the brain. Maternal stress levels, nutrition, and inflammation all can cause changes in the foetal brain, affecting the proliferation, migration, and wiring of neurons. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

MSc by Research on Nature Recovery
