Thanks to the wonderful support of a European Research Council Consolidator Grant, we are starting a new project on the evolution and ecology of the mutualistic relationship between honeyguides and human honey-hunters, working mainly in Mozambique, as well as Zambia, Tanzania, and elsewhere. New project website to come in due course! Warmest thanks to the ERC for their support.
Dr Gabriel Jamie has just returned from a successful couple of months of fieldwork in Zambia as part of his Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellowship. For this research, Dr Jamie is exploring the evolution of polymorphisms across diverse avian family Cisticolidae which exhibit some of the most complex and diverse eggs of any group of birds in the world.
