Project
Niche construction and evolutionary diversity in experimental communities

Led by David Paterson, Matthew Holden & Per Lundberg

 

This project investigates the impact of niche construction using miniature synthetic ecosystems, subjected to experimental manipulation of various forms of niche construction. The functional responses of bacterial populations to complementary and conflicting niche-constructing activities is being assessed, and the evolutionary response to niche construction quantified.
