Mgr. Martin Hůla

PhD. student. His primary research interests are people-plant interactions, especially the evolutionary origin of phytophilia (human attraction to plants) and commonalities and differences in human aesthetic perception of flowers. He also works as a guide in the Botanical garden of the Charles University. He has experiences with psychophysiological measurements of human subjects (particularly in sexological Read More …

Mgr. Jan Toman

In my PhD study, I deal with macroevolutionary and theoretical-biological topics. I focus especially on the theory of frozen evolution, which was postulated in our lab. Concerning particular problems, I study ecological correlates of sexual reproduction, stability-based sorting and its role in evolution, and macroevolutionary trends in the evolution of evolvability. However, I do also Read More …
