Can polar seabirds really adapt to climate change?

The ability of animals to adapt to their environment is crucial for populations to persist in a changing climate. However, we know that the environment changes not only in the average conditions, but also in how variable those conditions are. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - A global analysis of the effectiveness of Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas for conserving the world's birds

A major challenge for conservation is to identify important sites to efficiently safeguard biodiversity. The largest systematically identified network of important sites for conserving species is BirdLife International’s Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) network. Read more

Understanding the speciation process in a mega diverse genus

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Begonia is a genus of over 2,000 species, most are narrow endemics, with only a few widespread species. We wish to understand how distinct the species are by determining patterns of gene flow across the whole genome in sister species and populations. We will focus on two constrasting cases. .

New methods for detecting and quantifying genetic adaptation

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Understanding how populations adapt to their environment is a major focus of evolution research. Falling sequencing costs means genome data is more abundant than ever, but we still lack efficient methods for using it to infer and quantify the effects of natural selection. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of parasite- vector interactions: malaria- mosquito interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Parasites live in the bodies of others – with whom they are engaged in a life-and-death struggle – yet, how parasites cope with the challenges of their lifestyle is remarkably poorly understood. Read more

Its about time: the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more

The effects of stressful environments on ageing in burying beetles

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Senescence is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Ageing can be environmentally plastic, and various evolutionary and physiological arguments have been made to suggest that environments that are more harsh should cause faster rates of ageing.

Synthetic-evolution: linking genomics to biophysics to understand the rules of life.

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
The genome of every organism encodes genes and regulatory elements required for building and maintaining cells in homeostasis. However, it is still unknown what is the minimal set of genomic elements necessary and sufficient for cellular life. Read more
