Topical Collection "Evolution of Venom Systems"
Prof. Dr. Bryan Fry
Venom Evolution Laboratory, School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland, St. Lucia, QLD, 4072, Australia
Interests: venom molecular evolution; phylogenetics and structure-function relationships; toxins
Venom systems are key evolutionary innovations used for competitor deterrence, defence and predation. The evolution of venom has been the trigger for the explosive radiation of many orders of animals. This Special Issue will be composed of papers exploring origin and diversification of venom systems and their intricate relationship with changes in predatory ecology. Reviews for this collection are on an invitation-only basis. Please contact Professor Fry to discuss ideas for a review so as to avoid overlap with other reviews.
