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:

  • Social evolution in animal societies and cells, and regulation of social conflict
  • The co-evolutionary dynamics of mutualistic & parasitic interactions
  • Animal communication, emotions & social networks
  • Assembly rules of ecological communities
  • Conservation and invasive biology
  • Biodiversity genomics
  • The maintenance of genomic stability
  • Impact of climate change on organismal morphology
  • Why evolution has left humans vulnerable to disease
