  A bird’s eye view of warning signals
  Dr H Rowland, Dr U Mayer
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Many animals are toxic and advertise this to predators with conspicuous or distinctive warning signals, termed aposematism [1].
  Bimodal navigation in desert ants: The role of vision and olfaction
  Dr M Knaden, Dr H Rowland
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Desert ants of the genus Cataglyphis forage individually in the open saltpans of Tunisia. To find their way back after long foraging runs, the ants perform path integration (i.e.
  Chemical defense strategies of plants and evasion strategies of feeding insects – A systems biology approach
  Prof S Schuster, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. In plant-herbivore interactions, plants frequently produce toxic defense compounds, while insect herbivores frequently develop counter-defenses.
  Detoxification of diterpene resin acids by the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
  Prof J Gershenzon, Prof E. Kothe, Dr A Schmidt
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Many insect species feed on plants containing toxic defense compounds without any apparent negative effects. Since many such insects are important agricultural or forestry pests, scientists have been making intensive efforts to discover how insects can overcome chemical defenses.
  Molecular basis of balanced color polymorphisms in grasshoppers
  Prof H Schielzeth
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. All species are phenotypically variable, but in some species, multiple distinct color morphs coexist in local populations.
  Tiny beetle with a chemical weapon: Do flea beetles use mustard oils against predators and pathogens?
  Dr F Beran, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Plants and animals are well-known to use chemical weapons to defend themselves against enemies. When this chemical defence is produced by the organism itself, a major challenge is to store the toxin safely, but ready for action when needed.
