Alice Laciny, postdoctoral fellow at the KLI investigates the influence of parasites on the morphology of ant hosts. She aims to highlight the overlapping aspects of ecology, evolution and development.
"Why is birth so difficult in humans and why has evolution not resolved this obstetric dilemma?" KLI postdoctoral fellow Barbara Fischer talks about evolutionary constraints and childbirth.
"When you eat your daily meal do you ever ask yourself, where do the ingredients come from?" KLI fellow Christian Dorninger works on the biophysical and mental connectedness between humans and nature, with implications for sustainability studies.
What makes organisms different from other complex organized systems like machines?" KLI postdoctoral fellow Daniel Nicholson discusses the ontology of living systems, how they differ from other complex systems, and what implications these differences have for biological theory.
Largely unnoticed, we live in a cybernetic era where automated systems are part of everyday life. In this video, Dr Flavia Fabris, explains the main ideas of her research on the contribution of cybernetics to the development of contemporary biology.
"What if I told you that 19th century poet & playwright Johann Wolfgang von Goethe has something important to contribute to biology today?" KLI Alum (IHPST, University of Toronto) introduces us to an organism-centric philosophy of biology.
