Part of the TCSS Symposium

Professor Paul Brakefield is an evolutional biologist who works with butterflies and other insects. He is the chair in evolutionary biology at Leiden University, the Netherlands and director of the University Museum of Zoology in Cambridge. His research has centred on an African Butterfly, Bicyclus anynana, where he has tackled the issues of why eyespots matter in butterfly ecology and how they are made by genes that regulate specific developmental mechanisms. He is now exploring the processes of ecological diversification and speciation among the 250 or so species of these butterflies in the Old World.
