Our research in Zambia is enabled by a brilliant team of local nest-finding assistants. Gabriel Jamie, Claire Spottiswoode and Collins Moya gave illustrated talks to share our past brood parasite research findings, and future plans, with them and their families living on our study area. Please see here for some photos of these wonderful communities.
Tanmay Dixit was a member of a team organising and lecturing in the inaugural Evolutionary Biology Crash Course. This course, aimed at undergraduate or early-postgraduate students, teaches evolutionary principles to students who have had limited opportunities to be exposed to evolutionary ideas. The course is funded by the Equal Opportunities Initiative Fund of the European Society of Evolutionary Biology (ESEB). Tanmay presented lectures on behavioural ecology and evolution, focussing on kin selection, coevolution, and parasitism. Over 700 students, with the vast majority from the global South, attended the course, which was a resounding success!
