The movement of animals shapes their population dynamics and influences community and ecosystem structure. Animal movement patterns are therefore fundamental to our understanding of ecological systems and the processes, such as foraging, migration and dispersal, which shape these systems.

Speaker: Associate Professor Christopher McDevitt - School of Biological Sciences, The University of Adelaide
Bacterial infection involves a constant tug-of-war between host and pathogen for the essential nutrients of life. Acquisition of the first-row transition metal ion zinc from the host is crucial for the survival and propagation of pathogenic bacteria including Streptococcus pneumoniae.
