Upcoming 5 days
This Thursday, at the Speciation Journal Club, we will discuss a paper on brain size ad colonization processes, by Fristoe et al. published in 2017 in Nture Ecology and Evolution.
Species' responses to changes in the environment can be either genetic or plastic, and adaptive or non-adaptive. Identifying the exact nature of such responses requires integration of population models and quantitative genetics theory.
This Friday, October 20th, we're discussing a paper by Grabowski and Jungers (2017): "Evidence of a chimpanzee-sized ancestor of humans but a gibbon-sized ancestor of apes".
Hope to see you there!
