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 …
