Research topics

Research topics covered by staff at the Natural History Museum include European population history and how glaciations have shaped genetic structure, local population structure and diversity, and evolution of the chloroplast genome.

Recent studies by researchers world-wide include:

  • self-fertilisation
  • flowering time
  • leaf hairs
  • herbivory and anti-feeding
  • population transplantation
  • mutation rates
  • historical population changes
  • demographic history
  • genome sequencing
