EASTBIO Growing on the edge: The genomic basis of coastal adaptation in eyebrights (Euphrasia)

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Local adaptation enables plant populations to survive in extremely harsh environments. Coastal habitats present a suite of challenging conditions with plants exposed to drying oceanic salt spray and osmotically stressful high salinity soils. Read more

Understanding Historical and Contemporary Forces Shaping Tropical Biodiversity for Future Conservation

The large amount of environmental change that has occurred during the Pleistocene, in which tropical forests and grasslands have repeatedly contracted and expanded, has dramatically shaped the biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Read more

TOOL CRAFTING IN NEW CALEDONIAN CROWS

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
SUMMARY. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their ability to manufacture complex foraging tools from plant materials. Read more

Assessing the costs of building in birds

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Building an appropriate nest is key to reproductive success for most birds. Indeed nests themselves are familiar objects, while their contents (eggs and then chicks) are not just familiar but have been a focus for considerable investigation. Read more

Sex and sperm wars: the behavioural component of infertility

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Why is infertility so common? From both evolutionary and mechanistic perspectives, infertility remains a puzzle. Read more

Automated detection of small-scale deforestation via deep learning image analysis

With the recent availability of operational daily High Resolution satellite constellations such as Plant CubeSat, early detection systems of small scale events will become a reality in the next decade. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.
