Our symposium (co-organized with David Marques and Joana Meier) “A combinatorial view on rapid speciation – the role of ancient genetic variants and hybridisation” had an excellent set of speakers and posters talking about the role of introgression in speciation!
There was also a poster presentation on “Life-stage specific reproductive responses to temperatures in the European corn borer moth”, featuring research from a large experiment by PhD student Brittany Velikaneye.
Check out our special theme issue published by Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: ‘Genomic architecture of supergenes: causes and evolutionary consequences’ compiled and edited by Emma L. Berdan, Thomas Flatt, Genevieve M. Kozak, Katie E. Lotterhos and Ben Wielstra
Work on “Consequences of coupled barriers to gene flow for the build-up of genomic differentiation” available as online accepted article in Evolution
Work by former honors undergraduate Arielle Enos on how temperature changes reproductive investment in less preferred mates is published in Ecology and Evolution!
A new preprint on the “Consequences of coupled barriers to gene flow for the build-up of genomic differentiation: reproductive barriers and coupling in corn borers” is now available:
Read about research identifying the genetic basis of male response to pheromone, which was related to changes in the gene bric-a-brac, published in Nature Communications.
“bric à brac controls sex pheromone choice by male European corn borer moths”
Our publication, Genomic landscape of reproductive isolation in Lucania killifish: The role of sex loci and salinity was selected as the Editor’s choice for the Special Issue on Speciation in Marine Environments in the January 2021 issue of Journal of Evolutionary Biology.
