’Wait a minute! How did it...?’ Unravelling the causes and consequences of the evolution of larval development in invertebrates (Distance Learning Project)

Invertebrates that possess modular development – composed of a larval and an adult stage that are different morpho-ecologically – appear to have been the most successful amongst all invertebrates in conquering marine and terrestrial habitats. Read more

Predicting body size shrinkage - the third universal response to environmental warming

Background. As Earth warms, and heat waves become more frequent, climate impacts occur over short and long timescales. Three proposed universal responses of organisms to climate warming are geographical range shifts, changes in timing (phenology) of life events, and a reduction in body size. Read more

The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form. Read more

Host-Parasite Interactions

Our lab (. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jo_Cable). investigates host-parasite dynamics and the ecosystem impacts of invasive species. Read more

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

Defining the physiological role and regulation of biological methylations

The regulation of gene expression and function operates at multiple levels. Metabolic pathways in the cell generate metabolites that directly affect DNA, RNA and proteins, regulating the expression and function of many genes, often feeding back on the very enzymes that catalysed their synthesis.
