EECG Embarkation: Reefscape genomics: Mapping hybridization and adaptation across the Caribbean coral reef slope

    About the Blog Author Dr. Jennifer Hoey is an evolutionary ecologist and NSF-OCE Postdoctoral Fellow in the Reefscape Genomics Lab at the California Academy of Sciences. She studies how marine organisms adapt to changing conditions by investigating the evolutionary processes that contribute to genomic and morphological patterns of variation in the sea. Follow […]


EECG Embarkation: How connected are oceanic islands? The trans-oceanic journeys of the island-hopping Hibiscus sect. Lilibiscus.

        About the author Brock Mashburn is a PhD Candidate at Washington University in St. Louis and the Missouri Botanical Garden, working in the labs of Dr. Christine Edwards and Dr. Ken Olsen. He is interested in applying genetic methods to practical conservation, as well as questions regarding speciation and biogeography.   […]


Behind the Science: Making the most of a cancelled field season

    About the author Julia Harenčár is an evolutionary biologist passionate about combining ecology with genomics to understand plants. She is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Santa Cruz in Dr. Kathleen Kay’s Plant Evolution lab.       The story behind our recent article is riddled with modern science clichés; […]


EECG Epilogue: Population genomics reveals a single introduction of the invasive white pine sawfly, Diprion similis.

      About the Blog Author: Jeremy is an evolutionary ecologist and NSF postdoctoral fellow working with Catherine Linnen at the University of Kentucky Department of Biology. He is broadly interested in adaptation, speciation, population genomics and chemical ecology of insects. Follow him on Twitter @flydrocarbon.         Biological introductions can be seen as “natural experiments” […]
