We face an urgent need for better theories of rapid change in social-ecological systems. I will first use an ancient philosophical puzzle, modern ideas about networks and...
12–1pm 16 October 2018
For decades, studies of rapid species radiations have provided insight into the processes that drive biological diversification, but recently these analyses have been...

12–1pm 25 September 2018
Having spent much of my working life studying sexual conflicts in animals, I have grown increasingly absorbed by human relations and how evolutionary, economic and...
11.30am–12.30pm 21 September 2018
Speciation rates vary tremendously among evolutionary lineages but our understanding of the genomic architecture facilitating very rapid speciation remains incomplete...
1–2pm 18 September 2018
Please note: this seminar has been cancelled. Climate change threatens biodiversity, with many animals thought to be at risk of extinction. Global change will also alter...
11.30am–12.30pm 14 September 2018
Catherine Grueber’s work reveals how evolutionary and population processes affect individual- and population-level genetic diversity of small populations. In doing so,...
