Fork-tailed drongo egg

Jess’s MSc entitled “Coevolutionary causes and consequences of high-fidelity mimicry by a specialist brood parasite” was awarded with distinction. A massive thank you to the field team which made this work possible, the research group for all their discussion and assistance, and the two examiners who both had some wonderful insights. Jess is still on the team and is now doing her PhD at Cambridge on host-specificity in honeyguides.


Tanmay Dixit awarded PhD and starting Junior Research Fellowship

Tanmay’s PhD, entitled “Signatures and forgeries: optimality in a coevolutionary arms race” was awarded with no corrections. Huge thanks to collaborators and colleagues who were instrumental to this work, and to examiners James Herbert-Read and Graeme Ruxton. Tanmay will remain on the team and continue conducting fieldwork in Choma as part of the Junior Research fellowship that he is starting at Jesus College, Cambridge.
