Friday, March 23. Luke Bower will be leading the discussion of an article that compares face and brain evolution in two groups with high craniofacial variability. See you at O’Bannon’s this Friday! [Evans et al 2017]
Friday, March 9 David Saenz will enlighten us about knife fish and their fascinating communication methods. Apparently geographical variation in their electric signal is being ruled by drift rather than some other source of selection. See you at O’Bannon’s. [Picq et al 2016]
Friday, March 2 Stephen Bovio will be leading the discussion on reinforcement, geographic variation and hybridization in frogs. [Lemmon and Juenger 2017]
Sadly, we are approaching our last Journal Club of the year. Last week’s leaderless dynamic worked really nice so we are going to repeat it again this Friday when we explore the story of Brownian walk. Grab the article and meet us at O’Bannon’s 4 pm.
