Eetu Selenius and Jenna Lommi have completed their Master’s Degrees. Eetu’s thesis: The effects of sex pheromone on female attractiveness and its role in maintaining color polymorphism in Arctia plantaginis. Jenna’s thesis: Influence of colour, smell and taste on the survival of the wood tiger moth (Arctia plantaginis) adults during predation event.
Our lab joins with those of Chris Jiggins and Frank Chan to understand the genetic control of a complex polymorphism.
To begin in autumn 2021, Melanie’s project concentrates on the genetic basis of polymorphic colouration in the wood tiger moth.
