Advisory Board and Editors Evolutionary Studies

Anurag A. Agrawal

Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University. Collaborates with Cornell Chemical Ecology Group and works on various problems in community and evolutionary ecology of plant-insect interactions. Recipient of the David Starr Jordan Prize.

William Amos

Professor of Evolutionary Genetics in the Department of Zoology, Cambridge University. Head of the Molecular Ecology Research Group. Former associate editor of Molecular Ecology.

Maria Anisimova

Senior research fellow and lecturer at the Computer Science Departement of ETH Zurich and Swiss Institute for Bioinformatics. Editor of BMC Evol Biol and Trends in Evol Biol. In 2012 edited a book in 2 volumes "Evolutionary Genomics: Statistical and computational methods".

Jérémy Anquetin

Researcher at the 'Section d'archéologie et paléontologie', Jura cantonal Cultural Office, Switzerland. Jérémy received his PhD in Vertebrate Palaeontology from the University College London (UCL) and the Natural History Museum (NHM), London, UK. He specializes in the study of taxonomy, anatomy, and phylogeny of Mesozoic turtles. His current work is mainly focussed on Late Jurassic turtles from Europe.

Joe Bailey

Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee. My lab focuses on: 1) the factors that influence patterns of biodiversity with a specific focus on plant genetic variation, genotypic diveristy, and phylogenetic diversity. 2) The impacts of plant genetic variation and genotypic diversity on associated biodiversity and ecosystem function. Recipient of the Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Rising Star Leadership Fellow.

Ugo Bastolla

I got my PhD in Physics at Rome University, working with Luca Peliti and Giorgio Parisi on biologically inspired problems: evolutionary models and Boolean networks. Since then, I have always been interested in computational biology: Protein folding, Stability and population biology constraints in protein evolution, Conformation changes in proteins, Structural evolution of proteins, Theoretical ecology, Ecological interactions among microorganisms.

Richard M. Bateman

Visiting Professor, University of Reading/Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. Formerly Head, Dept. of Botany, Natural History Museum; Director of Science, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh; Head of Policy, Biosciences Federation. President, UK Hardy Orchid Society; Previously President, Systematics Association, Vice-President, European Society for Evolutionary-Developmental Genetics, Linnean Society of London, Botanical Society of the British Isles. Co-founder/editorial board member of six journals.

Susan M Bertram

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

Sheila M. Bowyer

Senior Lecturer for the Department of Medical Virology, blood borne virus division, at the University of Pretoria and Senior Medical Scientist for the National Health Laboratory System, Tshwane Academic Division. Responsibilities involve teaching and training, research and the provision of a viral diagnostic service to the public and private sector.

Sean G Brady

Research Entomologist and Curator of Hymenoptera, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. Primary research interests: Evolution of bees, ants, and other insects. Associate Editor: Insect Conservation and Diversity. Editorial Board: Insect Systematics and Evolution, Systematic Biology.

Barbara G. Briggs

Honorary Research Associate of the National Herbarium of New South Wales, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Past president of Australasian Systematic Botany Society. Recipient of the Clarke Medal for Botany.

Sarah F. Brosnan

I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.
