  Prof M Brockhurst, Dr A Beckerman, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Symbiosis is common across the tree of life and has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
