Behind the Scientist: An Interview with Kim Scribner

About the Scientist Kim Scribner is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife and Department of Integrative Biology at Michigan State University. Research in his lab involves applications of molecular genetic markers and evolutionary theory to examine questions in ecological genetics and conservation biology. Such investigations include determining levels of gene flow […]

The New Golden Age of Evolutionary Biology

      About the Author: Hayden Waller is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell University. He works with Hawaiian crickets to better understand the genetic basis of behavioral variation. You can find him on twitter @tbh_i_dont_know       Next time you find yourself at a party, walk […]


Presidential symposium contributors speak on the present and future of Indirect Genetic Effects

  About the author: Sarah McPeek is a PhD candidate with Dr. Butch Brodie at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. Her research focuses on the evolution of behavioral interactions among nectar-producing woodland wildflowers and nectar-foraging beetles at Mountain Lake Biological Station. She previously earned her bachelor of the arts at Kenyon College in […]


What happens when hunting history, whale culture, genetics, and an international collaboration work towards a common goal?

Right whales were given their name because they were the rightwhales to hunt: they swim slowly near the ocean’s surface and make predictable annual migrations to easily accessible bays along the coast. They were hunted to near extinction before international protections were enacted in 1935. As the species recovered, researchers have acquired a myriad of […]
