Research Interests

Professor Beverley Glover came to Cambridge in 1996 following a PhD at the John Innes Centre in Norwich. Her main area of interest is the evolution and development of floral features which attract pollinating animals. She is keen to approach questions of floral evolution in an integrative way, combining molecular genetic approaches to understand floral development with functional analyses using bumblebees and other pollinators. Where possible, these projects are carried out with regard to the phylogenetic context. The research group’s work on these topics is underpinned by the living collection of Cambridge University Botanic Garden, of which Beverley is also Director.
