EECG Embarkation: Colors, hormones, and genes: How are genomic expression patterns altered to facilitate the evolution of color?

**The AGA grants EECG Research Awards each year to graduate and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication. EECG awardees also get the opportunity to hone their science communication and write three posts over their […]

Sex ratios have become a hot topic– we need to better understand how rising temperatures are skewing them

    About the Author: Dr. Bonnie Derne (@b_derne) recently completed a PhD within the Lab of Evolutionary Genetics and Sociality at Flinders University, South Australia. She used genetic markers to track parasite dynamics during the experimental translocation of an endangered skink, and is generally interested by parasite ecology, conservation biology and the ways in […]

Behind the science: Looking for the population genetic signatures of variable clonality across an environmental gradient

About the author: Will H. Ryan is a postdoc currently working in the Krueger-Hadfield Lab at the University of Alabama at Birmingham on the evolutionary ecology of marine organisms with complex life cycles. In order to better understand mechanisms driving local adaptation and life cycle diversity, he studies how environmental variation interacts with genetic and plastic […]
