The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.

The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).
