Evolution research looks at heritable changes across successive generations of biological populations, speciation, phylogeny, adaptation, evolutionary ecology and genetics.
DNA technologies have expanded evolutionary studies by including ancient DNA from extinct species and populations in analyses. Our dedicated ancient DNA laboratory handles all types of degraded genetic material including herbarium and museum specimens.
Behavioural ecology analyses the evolutionary context of animal behaviours associated with adaption to environments, and applies this knowledge to species conservation.
This is the study of interdependency between plants and animals, including pollination and seed-dispersal mutualisms and the exploitation of plants for food (herbivory and seed predation).
We research evolutionary relationships among species from their morphological and genetic characteristics.We use bioinformatics to study biodiversity and systematics.
We study the process of evolution by natural selection. Population genetics are used to estimate gene flow, population size changes, historical distribution and species boundaries.
