Professor Angus Buckling
Professor of Evolutionary Biology


Broad research specialisms

I work on the evolutionary ecology of microbes, primarily by studying evolution in real time in controlled environments (experimental evolution).  Research interests range from developing and testing general evolutionary ecology theory (host-parasite coevolution, social evolution, evolution of species diversity, evolution within community contexts) to more applied issues (evolution of virulence, antimicrobials, biomethane production, heavy metal bioremediation).
