  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
