Are good males bad females? Sexual conflict in hermaphrodites

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Animal hermaphrodites (organisms that are both males and females) are extremely common and important from both an economic and ecological perspective but we know little about the evolution of this group. This project will examine how sexual conflict, so pervasive in organisms with separate sexes, affects the evolution of hermaphrodites.
