How have the natural microbiomes from different ruminant body sites evolved to influence host health and efficiency?

As part of the €10M EU project ‘Holoruminant’ this PhD project will investigate the natural microbiomes found in and on ruminants to investigate their ecological and evolutionary importance to the health and efficiency of the host. Read more

Why do some lineages survive mass extinctions? A global research program in the era of an emerging human-induced mass extinction

Mass extinction events wipe out >75% of the planet’s biodiversity – the other quarter (or less), survives. Human-induced environmental change is dragging modern biodiversity into an emerging mass extinction that threatens the ecosystems we depend on. Read more
