Diversity & Symbiosis


Life conquered the planet by networking. With increased global anthropogenic threats to natural environments, there are increased disruptions to interactions between various organisms. Many of these interactions, particularly those between smaller organisms, are not clearly understood.  Research focuses on describing some of these interations, as well as identifying anthropogenic influences on such specialised systems.
