Evolution and diversity

Work encompassed in this theme focuses on analysing the macro-evolutionary and micro-evolutionary processes which lead to patterns of species-level, sub-specific and genomic diversity.

Headline research projects for this theme:

Disorder in nanoscale ridges on petals has evolved repeatedly and helps attract pollinators. Leads: Beverly Glover and Edwige Moyroud.

Living collections in global botanic garden networks contribute to a global strategy in ex-situ plant conservation. Lead: Sam Brockington.

Species diversification: absolute seed size and the rate of change in seed size were both associated with diversification rates in over 13,000 angiosperm species. Lead: Andrew Tanentzap.
