Section for Ecology and Evolution

We address fundamental questions about the organizational principles and functional diversity of life. Major research interests – often shared between research groups – are:

  • The co-evolutionary dynamics of mutualistic and parasitic species
  • The evolution of societies of individuals and cells and the regulation of social conflict
  • Animal communication networks
  • The assembly rules of ecological communities
  • Conservation and invasive biology
  • Biodiversity genomics
  • The maintenance of genomic stability
  • Why evolution by natural selection has left humans vulnerable to disease
