Brief description This project will use extensive sampling and long-term field data to reveal ongoing co-evolutionary mechanisms behind the increasing resistance of pest Australian wild rabbits against a viral pathogen. The results will increase the understanding of evolutionary mechanisms in nature and will provide basic information for biological pest control of rabbits.
