How to experimentally test for fitness effects from microbial associations.
Secondary metabolites from marine organisms
Role of microbiome
Seagrass microbiomes: determining the core microbiome; ecological role of seagrasses in reducing pathogens (cf. Lamb et al. 2017 Science paper on health of coral reefs with and without adjacent seagrass meadow. How might this apply to temperate systems involving Zostera marina? Jeanine Olsen
This paper could probably also be interesting to discuss also for the other IMAGO species.
Identification of viruses in genome sequences of animals/plants/fungi
The role of parental effects in adaptation – to discuss experimental and mechanistic approaches
Evolution of intrinsic barrier to gene flow
Micro-macro interactions applications on the IMAGO species.
And of course it is possible to suggest also other topics during the days...
