In this research cluster, we ask theoretically motivated questions in evolutionary biology, such as what determines the ability of the organisms to evolve? How does complex development affect evolutionary trajectories? Or, how does it itself evolve? In pursuit of these goals, we combine theoretical, biometric and experimental research.
