Tom Réveillon joined the lab.

Tom will work on indirect evolutionary facilitation and the role of trait diversity within populations for population dynamics.

New paper on eco-evo dynamics in Nature Ecology and Evolution.

New paper out on eco-evo dynamics in predator-prey systems and the role of abiotic stressors. We used experimental evolution, classical ecological theory for predator-prey dynamics and temporally resolved whole genome sequence information to test how low concentrations of antibiotics affect the ecology, evolution and the feedback between ecology and evolution. To see what we found, check out the paper in Nature Ecology and Evolution.

Exciting times, Anke, Joelle, Lijuan, Ruben and Karla joined the lab beginning of this month.

Anke is a postdoc and she works on the circadian rhythm in Daphnia together with Alex Wacker from Postdam and Dominik Martin-Creuzburg from here. Joelle is our first Bachelor student here in Konstanz and she works with Eva on the evolution of virus traits. Lijuan is a visiting student from China, where she works with our colleague and friend Weini Huang. Lijuan received a scholarship from the DAAD to visit our lab. Ruben followed us from Ploen to Konstanz and he's a PhD student on a project…
