Camiel Doorenweerd studies the role of host plants in the diversification patterns of two groups of leaf-mining moths. He investigates how these moths have adapted to changes in the climate and host plants over millions of years, either through gradual adaptation to deciduousness within the same host group or through massive shifts to other hosts. Another aim is to establish whether host plants have been a common driving factor for diversification in both groups.
