PhD positions ×2: the evolutionary ecology of marine heterotrophs

Two fully-funded PhD stipends are available to students interested in working on the evolutionary ecology of marine heterotrophs in the Centre for Geometric Biology.

 

LOLinR package: a statistically robust and reproducible approach to estimating monotonic rates from biological data

Colin Olito and Diego Barneche have developed LoLinR (local linear regression): a suite of simple functions to carry out local linear regressions to estimate monotonic rates from time series data. Importantly, their methodology provides a statistically robust and reproducible approach to estimating monotonic rates from noisy time series data.

Selection may not act alone to determine variation in life history traits across depth gradients

Researchers Rolanda Lange, Keyne Monro and Dustin Marshall have been asking the question “why do some organisms grow, reproduce and die more quickly than others?” They are interested in understanding how variation in these basic life history traits is sustained over small spatial scales.
