MSCA: Rethinking Darwin's Theory of Evolution

Wednesday, 4 December, 2013
Marta López Daris is an ecologist from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellow at the Instituto de Productos Naturales y Agrobiología (CSIC) where she is concluding a postdoctoral position. She has already undertaken research on rethinking Darwin's Theory of Evolution in the contemporary context. Her scientific approach is to study hunting as a force driving evolution. She spent two years in the US and one year in Spain comparing the evolution of predator and prey between the Bahamas and the Canary Islands. As a scientist, the Individual Fellow Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions grant is helping her to improve her scientific skills and initiate strong collaborations with scientists in other parts of the world.
"As a scientist the Individual Fellowship is helping me to improve my scientific skills and is also giving me the opportunity to initiate strong collaborations with scientists in other places of the world." Marta López Daris, post-doctoral MSCA fellow

She has already undertaken research on rethinking Darwin's Theory of Evolution in the contemporary context. Her scientific approach is to study hunting as a force driving evolution. This way of measuring evolution is to study rapid changes in the behaviour of prey in presence of a predator.
