At #ucdavis 1/12: Judie Bronstein “Mutualism: What Do We Know, and Where Do We Go From Here?”

Tomorrow’s Ecology and Evolution speaker will

be Judie Bronstein from University of Arizona.

Title: Mutualism: What Do We Know, and Where Do We Go From Here?
Room: 100 Hunt Hall
Date and Time: 4:10pm on Thursday January 12th

According to her webpage
"We study all things mutualistic. Projects in the lab focus on
ecological, evolutionary, and behavioral questions about mutualism.
We’re particularly interested in coevolutionary dynamics, community
organization, context dependency, climate change effects, and the
continuum from cooperation to conflict. We are linked more by a common
conceptual context rather than any single type of interaction or group
of organisms."

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
