"Piecing Together the Puzzle to Understand the Evolution of the Ants: Macroevolution to Microbiomes"
Briggs 122 at 4:10PM, Wednesday January 15, 2020
A summary from her lab website:
Research in our lab focuses on the symbiotic factors that drive speciation, adaptation, and evolutionary diversification. We use ants and other insects to tease apart the factors that influence patterns of evolution – from the rise of the flowering plants, symbioses ants have with other insects and plants, and their gut-associated microbial community are all potential underlying factors that may have facilitated their ecological dominance in almost all terrestrial ecosystems.
