Evolutionary Ecology of Plant–Insect Interactions

Magne Friberg lab

Most species interactions evolve in site-specific networks of multiple coevolving species, and each interaction is likely shaping suites of traits on both sides of the interaction. Therefore, our study systems often include multiple plant- and insect species that form small interaction networks. In these networks, we study plant and insect trait evolution, and the role of trait diversification for gene flow and local adaptation.

Anna Runemark lab

I am a diversity and speciation researcher with evolutionary genomics and biogeography expertise and a background in evolutionary ecology. Broadly, my research strives to identify how variation arises and the processes by which it sorts into new species, as well as which ecological settings and factors that promote these processes.
