Expanding phylogenetic reconstruction in bacteria

Bacterial phylogenies are generally built using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as their behaviour is well-studied, and they usually produce robust phylogenetic trees. Read more

Fungal Ice nucleation: Moulding our environment?

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. ·       Work with Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and the University of Warwick to establish why various fungi cause ice to form in the environment. Read more

The causes of speciation rate variation in nature

The project. Rates of species formation vary dramatically across the tree of life and contribute to profound differences in species richness among clades, regions and through time. Read more

Breeding system evolution in shorebirds

  Research Group: Biodiversity
Shorebirds (plovers, sandpipers and allies) exhibit high diversity of mating systems and parenting. My reserarch group investigates the ecolutionary causes and conservational implications of this diversity. Read more

Mutational signatures in bacteria

Different mutational processes leave signatures in the variants generated over time in bacterial genomes. These processes can include chemical or environmental mutagens, as well as intrinsic metabolic processes and DNA repair pathways. Read more

Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use

Project Overview. This project uses phylogenetic comparative methods to characterise medicinal plant use. You will use published data to identify the ethnobotanical uses of selected species, and the extent to which they are characterised in terms of phytochemistry and pharmacology. Read more

HFSP funded studentship on the evolution of insect sperm form and function

University of Lincoln is offering one fully-funded PhD studentship in connection to a three-year Human Frontiers Science Program project entitled “The evolution of sperm cell shape and motion”. Read more

Drivers and Conservation implications of the global pet trade

The trade of exotic animals has been a central component of human culture for over 10,000 years. However, the volume and diversity of species traded has increased dramatically over the last few decades. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more
