Research

Our research incorporates behavioural experiments, ecological fieldwork and theoretical modelling to explore the evolutionary causes and consequences of insect-plant interactions. We use our studies to try to explain the tremendous diversity of animal-plant interactions that exist, and also to try to uncover general principles of co-evolution.

Our work has focused on visual cues and foraging choices, floral visitors and ant scent marks and post-pollination changes in floral colour and shape.
