The genomic and adaptive consequences of extreme, human-mediated population decline

Human activities are placing incredible pressure on the natural world and impacting population sizes of wild organisms, but the consequences of severe population decline in the wild is poorly understood. Read more

Sex, males, and hermaphrodites in the scale insect Icerya purchasi

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Summary. Organisms reproduce in diverse ways. Yet it is unclear why and how new reproductive strategies evolve. This project focuses on the only case of hermaphroditism in insects. Read more

Rethinking evolution in self-fertilising species

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
A major goal of evolution is to understand how selection acts in the genome. Many species reproduce via self-fertilisation, where individuals produce both male and female gametes that can be used to produce offspring. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Unveiling the environmental and genetic drivers of continuous colour variation in the European sea lemon (Doris pseudoargus)

Animal colouration is fascinating and it plays a vital role in communication, reproduction and defence. Defensive colouration is particularly intriguing, with some species showing extensive colour variation across their range in response to predation. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Genome-wide diversity and demographic history of relict island populations of rodents

Conservation genetics theory predicts that when a few founding individuals colonise a vacant habitat they will experience a reduction in genetic diversity through the effects of genetic drift which can compromise the viability of the population and limit its capacity to adapt to the new environmental conditions.

Patterns and processes underlying genetic and adaptive variation in the Namaqua rock mouse (Micaelamys namaquensis) from southern Africa

Small mammals provide important ecosystem services as pollinators and seed dispersers (Jones and Safi 2011). They also aerate soil, regulate insect populations, support forest regeneration and are a food source for snakes, bird of prey and carnivores (Pearce & Venier 2005). Read more
