Causes and consequences of variable selection for biodiversity

Research group

Short description

The tremendous biodiversity of our planet arises because the forms that are most favoured vary substantially according to context. Our research groups studies both cause and consequence of variable selection on populations. Our work includes pure science, in which we study groups with remarkably diverse and often puzzling adaptations, as well as applications of evolution to developing more sustainable control of agricultural pests.
