Experimental evolution of physiology and behavior:

  • artificial selection for high aerobic metabolism, herbivorous capability and predatory behavior in bank voles
  • changes in biochemical, physiological and behavioral traits
  • molecular background
  • evolution of bacterial symbionts (microbiome)
  • fitness components under natural conditions


Testing the Heat Dissipation Limit theory in the context of ageing: reproductive performance in

  • voles from the selection experiment
  • lab mice and birds

Experimental evolution of the thrifty and spendthrift genotypes, and its consequence for susceptibility to adverse effects of “Western diet”: insights from a selection experiment on bank voles (a description of the project).
