PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Evolution at extremes: Macroevolutionary responses to harsh environments

The Australian landscape presents many areas of extreme conditions for plant survival, such as drought, heat, or salt-affected soils. Are some lineages better able to adapt and diversify in these harsh conditions?

This project is open to Honours and PhD students
