The other ‘big’ paper, describing genome wide allele frequency changes upon experimental transplantation to new environments, is ‘in press’ at Ecology Letters. Finally. The online early preprint can be found HERE
The ‘big’ paper on eco-evolutionary dynamics is published. Find the article HERE and coverage in Current Biology via a dispatch article HERE. Media and related coverage can be obtained by clicking HERE for National Geographic and HERE for Current Biology
Congratulations to Tim for his paper coming out in Current Biology and to Rudy and Aaron who have papers recently accepted in Ecology Letters and the American Naturalist, respectively.
The special section of the journal Evolution on genome evolution during speciation, edited by Jeff Feder and myself, is published HERE.
The Nosil lab has been awarded a Unity Through Knowledge Grant to work together with Croatian scientists to study the effects of pollution on the ecology and evolution of mussel populations along the Adriatic coast. For some photos, click HERE.
Summer and associated congresses (INTECOL and ESEB) are over – everyone is back for fall.
Field work came and went!
An article stemming from the APS ‘Speciation reading group’ is published in Evolution. The paper documents that the degree of sympatry between species of Drosophila affects reinforcement, and can be found HERE
Rudy Riesch joined the lab in fall 2012 and is preparing for his first field season with the stick insect system. He will explore the role of CHCs and chemical communication in adaptation and speciation. Kei Matsubayashi received a fellowship from Japan to work as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab for two years. He will continue his work on speciation in ladybird beetles.
