Biologists’ Night 2023
Why should you care? Investigating the evolution of parental care in fishes or Biophoto cells and algae: green economy – these are just two examples of the events which took place during this year’s edition of the Biologists' Night organised by the UW Faculty of Biology.
Evolution of lizards at the era of dinosaurs
“This little fossil lets us see the evolution in action. In palaeontology you rarely have an occasion to work with such complete, well-preserved fossils,” Dr Mateusz Tałanda, the Faculty of Biology of the University of Warsaw, said. The discovery of Bellairsia gracilis in Scotland has become a source of information about the early evolution of lizards at the era of dinosaurs.
The abundance of plant species in Europe’s forests is decreasing as a result of the displacement of local species by the widespread
Prof. Bogdan Jaroszewicz from the Białowieża Geobotanical Station of the UW Faculty of Biology is among the authors of an article, published in the journal "Nature Ecology & Evolution", presenting how the biodiversity of forest undergrowth has changed over the past decades. The research was based on data from 68 temperate forest complexes in Europe, including the Bialowieża Forest.
A new interpretation of the origin of dinosaurs
Palaeontologists from the UW Faculty of Biology have provided evidence that dinosaurs evolved directly from four-legged ancestors. Previously, it was believed that dinosaurs were evolved from two-legged animals. The results were published in the Journal of Anatomy.
UW biologist with EMBO Installation Grant
Dr Anna Karnkowska from the UW Faculty of Biology and Biological and Chemical Centre received a grant from the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The Installation Grant is awarded to early-career researchers establishing their independent laboratories. Dr. Karnkowska’s research interests include diversity and molecular evolution of chosen groups of protists.
