Paper on phases of speciation accepted at Nature EE

Ok. Many rounds of review and revision later, our article entitled “Transitions between phases of genomic differentiation during stick-insect speciation” is now accepted at Nature Ecology and Evolution.

Thanks for the patience of all involved.

Tim’s paper on gene flow and patch occupancy accepted in Evolution

Tim’s paper is accepted in Evolution. It shows how maladaptive gene flow can reduce patch occupancy, thus contributing to extinction-colonisation dynamics in meta-populations.

Aaron’s paper on colour polymorphism accepted in Evolution

Long time between posts; I’ve been slacking on this front. Some recent good news is that our paper (led by Aaron) examining the genetics of colour-polymorphism in two species of stick-insect is accepted for publication in Evolution. Congratulations Aaron.

New experimental genomics paper accepted in Ecology Letters

A paper in the Rhagoletis system that I am author on (Egan et al. 2015 Ecology Letters), showing correspondence of within-generation experimental selection responses to divergence of natural populations, is accepted at Ecology Letters. This paper mirrors the one in the same journal last year in Timema (Gompert et al. 2014 Ecology Letters).

Update

I’ve been poor at posting news. Aaron successfully completed his PhD – congratulations Aaron – and Rudy has moved to his new position in London – congratulations Rudy. We are working on writing and revising manuscripts, and plans have already begun for field season, where Moe, Romain, Doro, and myself will spend two months in California, perhaps with a guest appearance by Victor. Kay Lucek shows ups soon as a new SNSP funded PDRA, and we are in the process of hiring a database manager for the lab.
