Hybridization and climate change in Alpine Orchids (BYERS_UJIC22ARIES)

Scientific background – Hybrid populations of orchids in the European Alps produce a “natural laboratory” that enables us to study adaptive evolution in response to rapid environmental change. Read more

EASTBIO Integrating trees into agricultural landscapes to enhance biodiversity and associated ecosystem services

Tree planting is at the forefront of the current environmental agenda to mitigate climate change and the biodiversity crisis. For instance, the Scottish Government has a current target of planting 12,000 ha of trees per year, increasing to 15,000 ha from 2024. Read more

EASTBIO Improving prawn aquaculture for food security and disease biocontrol

Environmental, sustainability and political concerns necessitate a review and reconfiguration of our food production systems, particularly for global commodities like shrimp and prawns. Read more

EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the impact of host sex on viral infection

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Infectious disease dynamics depend strongly on the ability of individuals to control the pathogen and to transmit it to others. Sex is known to have a large impact on pathogen control, but much less is known about the effect of host sex on disease transmission. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more
