Programme description

The study provides a deeper knowledge of entomology, ornithology, behavioural ecology, and biology of various animal species. The doctoral theses are aimed at molecular taxonomy of various groups of insect, evolution of mimicry, and evolutionary processes based on molecular data in entomology, speciation, hybridisation, evolution of survival and reproduction strategies, the role of predation in evolution of reproductive strategies, allocation of resources and maternal effects, sexual selection, and broad parasite-host interactions in ornithology.
