The interplay of conditional movement and size specific ecology for eco-evolutionary dynamics of spatial populations Ghent University
The project aims to study how conditional movement and local demographics determine the eco-evolutionary dynamics of spatially structured populations. It will integrate advanced conditional movement ecology and state-of-the-art size structured population theory with spatial population ecology and life history trait evolution. The research program will combine individual level measurements, multi-generational population and selection ...
Conservation biology of fragmented wild orchid populations: integrating genetics and ecology in a spatial context. KU Leuven
Climate change is inducing significant shifts in species' ranges. At margins of these expanding ranges, altered environmental conditions induce strong selection pressures on life history traits which in turn largely impact on ecological processes. These will be empirically studied under mesocosm conditions and by spatially will be studies by genomics tools.

Population genetic structure and cryptic diversity in free-living marine nematodes: descritpion and implications for population and ecosystem functioning Ghent University
This projects investigates the population genetic structure and cryptic diversity of selected free-living marine neamtode species using a combined molecular - morphological - morphometric approach. In addition, functional implications of genotypic diversity within known morphospecies are experimentally studied. Finally, the relationship between genetic diversity and the fitness, resistance and resilience of nematode populations is empirically ...
