Offre de thèse : Evolution of a biodiversity in Israel (Jerusalem)

Logo The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Global climate change and rapid anthropogenic alterations to biotic and a-biotic conditions are accelerating biodiversity decline and changing ecosystems’ functions. Loss of genetic diversity and ecological integrity might ultimately reduce the evolutionary potential of animal populations experiencing rapidly changing conditions. The proposed multidisciplinary research will focus in understanding the genetic changes among two species, the mountain gazelle (Gazella gazella) and the jungle cat (Felis chaus), which share the same habitat and ecosystem at the southern Levant. The genetic changes will be studied based on genomic analysis of samples from the Natufian period (~15,000 years ago) to the present day.
