Polish Press Agency about the research conducted in our Institute “Kin selection promotes female productivity and cooperation between the sexes”
Aleksandra Łukasiewcz, Agnieszka Szubert-Kruszyńska i Jacek Radwan (Evolutionary Biology Lab) found that evolution in groups of relatives results in higher reproductive output of females which partly results from the mitigation of the sexual conflict. (published in Science Advances). More about this research can be found here (in Polish).
Krzysztof Zawierucha, PhD candidate from our Institute, works on the diversity of micro invertebrates in cryoconite holes as well as he is interested in functioning of glacial biome. Current knowledge on the invertebrate diversity and their role in the extreme glacial habitats is really poor. These invertebrates may play important role like, grazers and higher [...]
