Expertise: Bats

Prof Stephen Rossiter
I am interested in the causes and consequences of genetic structure, from the level of individuals to populations through to species. My research mainly focuses on bats, which number over 1,100 species, and range from solitary to highly social forms. I am especially interested in how populations diverge, and the mechanisms by which reproductive isolation is achieved in this process. Current projects include a long-term study of the mating and social behaviour in greater horseshoe bats, a comparative investigation of the impact of social organisation on gene flow in continuous bat populations, and the function of hearing genes in the evolution of echolocation, and their role in bat speciation.
