EVOLUTIONARY ECOLOGY OF WILDLIFE DISEASES
The College of Life and Environmental Sciences (CLES) is based on the beautiful Penryn Campus of the University of Exeter. Situated on the southern coast of Cornwall, the campus is unique in conducting world leading research within a vibrant coastal landscape.
With a focus on the evolutionary ecology of host-pathogen interactions, our group explores questions relating to pathogen host-shifts, novel disease emergence, the evolution of host resistance and the evolution of pathogen virulence in a range of wild animal populations.
