EEB Thursday Seminar Series: Coevolution within small and large webs of interacting species

Coevolution is one of the major processes shaping the web of life. In this talk I will begin with results from recent empirical studies showing how coevolving interactions between a group of insects and plants have diversified into small multispecific networks that become building blocks of larger networks. I will then discuss results from our recent models of how selection acting on these kinds of small coevolving networks may be reshaped within large webs of mutualistic species.
