We have published a paper that shows how phytochemical beta-diversity affects insect specialization!
Quantity and specialisation matter: Effects of quantitative and qualitative variation in willow chemistry on resource preference in leaf-chewing insects
Post-Doc in Phylogenomics
Disentangling the Phylogeny and Evolution of the Willow Family
We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher (max. seven years after obtaining a PhD degree) experienced in bioinformatics and phylogenomics to join our projects exploring plant-herbivore interactions and the evolution of host-plant defences in the willow family (Salicaceae).
