Organiza

Main

The team BEE (Biogeographical Ecology and Evolution) studies patterns and processes mediating population biology from ecological to evolutionary scales. Topics include phylogeography, population dispersal/connectivity, abiotic stress-driven evolution, reproductive ecology and roles of mating systems in population divergence and speciation. Biological models include algae, marine plants, invertebrates and vertebrates, using a variety of approaches, from population genetics and phylogeny to experimental ecology and environmental genomics. The team is composed of subgroups: MAREE (Ester Serrao and Gareth Pearson), BioCon (Rita Castilho), and the team of Katy Nicastro.
