E&E PhD Exit Webinar: Diversity and cophylogenetic analyses of Tulasnellaceae mycorrhizal associations of Australian terrestrial orchids ...

3pm 24 April 2020

Orchid mycorrhizal fungi are essential for orchid seed germination and survival due to the lack of endosperm in dust-like orchid seeds. I investigated the mycorrhizal associations in Cryptostylis and Drakaeinae orchids.

Explaining imperfect mimicry - the case of ant mimics »

12pm 3 March 2020

Batesian mimics are deliciously palatable species that gain protection from a predator by resembling a defended or unpalatable model. Theory predicts that mimics that closely resemble their model should have the greatest advantage, while inaccurate mimics should be recognised and attacked by predators.

Forward genetic screening identifies a link between Plasmodium falciparum fever response, artemisinin resistance and the algal origins of the...

12pm 2 March 2020

The emergence and spread of Plasmodium falciparum parasites that are resistant to front-line antimalarial artemisinin-combination therapies (ACT) threatens to erase the considerable gains against the disease of the last decade. We developed a new large-scale phenotypic screening pipeline and used it to carry out the fi
