Evolutionary ecology

Evolutionary Ecology (EvoFish) is a research group working on both fundamental and applied aspects of eco-evolutionary biology.

We work with fisheries-induced evolution, environmental influence on fish behaviour and cognition, evolutionary parasitology, and plant-animal interactions. Our model species include guppy, daphnids, salmon lice, salmon and gobies. We have strong traditions in biostatistics, experiments, and modelling.

Evolutionary Fisheries Ecology (EvoFish) was established in 2007 with a grant from the Bergen Research Foundation. Evolutionary Ecology was one of original groups at BIO from 2004. In September 2013, our groups merged. To reflect the breath of our research we took Evolutionary Ecology as the group name, but will keep EvoFish as our short name.
