Suzie Mills

Suzie Mills is interested in:
• The role of hormones in the modulation of reproductive behaviour, immune function and survival (model organisms include bank voles, lizards, clownfish and sharks).
• Mechanisms for maintaining genetic variation including: trade off between reproduction and immune response, GxE interactions and sexually antagonistic genes (model organisms include bank voles and lizards).
• Distinguishing between pollution effects on the recruitment potential of coral reef organisms and recruitment survival (model organisms include pearl oysters, shrimps and other invertebrates).
• The genetic mating system, sexual selection and recruitment of symbiotic marine crustaceans (model organism: the shrimp Periclimenes soror).
