UCSB EEMB SEMINAR SERIES

However, I will also show that the virulence of this virus is not constrained by host mortality and that fitness in an avian host is selecting for the most virulent forms of the virus. Finally, I will describe some recent efforts to develop tools to conserve bats impacted by this disease. Learning how complex traits like eyes originate is fundamental for understanding evolution. I will show that the intensity of yearly epidemics of West Nile virus in humans are governed by a combination of immunity and climate that make spatial predictions of where potential future epidemics will occur possible. Multiple genes used in eyes today had ancestral roles in stress responses. I will present data that illustrate these interactions in two systems – West Nile virus in birds and white-nose syndrome in bats. By doing so, we can learn when the parts came together and perhaps understand why they stayed together.

I apply the approach to five structural innovations critical for complex eyes, reviewing the history of the parts of some of those innovations. You are here Events.

I apply the approach to five structural innovations critical for complex eyes, reviewing the history of the parts of some of those innovations. I will first sketch historical perspectives on trait origins and argue that new technologies offer key new insights.

Skip to main content. To address them, I propose a research program to break complex traits into components and study the individual evolutionary histories of those parts. The introduction of pathogens to new regions and naive populations has had enormous effects on wildlife, livestock and human health.

The dynamics and impacts of introduced pathogens in the introduced regions are determined by ecological and evolutionary interactions among hosts, the pathogen, and the environment.

Host-pathogen interactions for emerging infectious diseases: I will show that the intensity of yearly epidemics of West Nile virus in humans are governed by a combination of immunity and climate that make spatial predictions of where potential future epidemics will occur possible.

Next, I will articulate four open questions about trait origins.

Events Archive 10 18 40 39 The impact of white-nose syndrome offers broad insight into continental patterns of species abundance and distribution, and comparisons of infection patterns in endemic regions with those in invading and established regions of North America illustrate how some populations of bats may persist with this pathogen. I hypothesize that photo-stress could have increased the chance those genes were expressed together in places on animals where light was abundant.

Skip to main content. Learning how complex traits like eyes originate is esmb for understanding evolution. Photoreceptors evolved within animals by bricolage, recombining genes that originated far earlier. I will present data that illustrate these interactions in two systems – West Nile virus in birds and white-nose syndrome in bats.

Finally, I will describe some recent efforts to develop tools to conserve bats impacted by this disease.
