Evolutionary ecology of parasite- vector interactions: malaria- mosquito interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Parasites live in the bodies of others – with whom they are engaged in a life-and-death struggle – yet, how parasites cope with the challenges of their lifestyle is remarkably poorly understood. Read more

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

Behavioural impact of environmental pollutants and parasites in gammarid amphipods

Project Rationale. Echinogammarus marinus is an ecologically important aquatic invertebrate and a good model for untangling the combined and separate impacts of parasitism and environmental pollutants. 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.

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite relationships

Interactions between parasites and their hosts are one of the major driving forces in ecology and evolution. Social insects, as one of the dominant group of land animals and possessors of complex social systems, provide a fascinating host system within which to study these forces. Read more

Understanding the biological mechanisms underpinning the virulence of Varroa destructor to the European honey bee (Apis mellifera)

Insect pollinators are necessary for the reproductive success of 88% of flowering plants globally. Managed Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) offer mobile pollination services to complement wild pollinators and contribute to this ecosystem service. Read more

Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more
