Project Description

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites. This work is important because it can help us understand interactions between hosts and parasites, and because bumble bees are a declining but ecologically and economically important group of pollinators. Our main focus is trying to understand the dynamics of interactions between single parasites and multiple host species, and between parasite communities and individual host species, although we also investigate more classical single-species interactions. If you are interested, please see my webpage for a list of publications and more details: http://www.rhul.ac.uk/Biological-Sciences/AcademicStaff/Brown/index.html
