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 […]

AGA 2020 – blogging!

Are you registered for the online AGA Presidential Symposium? We are looking for interested participants to write short snippets about talks at the online meeting. Posts are meant to be short recaps of interesting talks following the vein of other meeting digests here, here, or here. If you are interested in writing a summary of one […]


Reproductive Isolation and the ‘Hockey Assist’ – How a shift to self-compatible mating systems can bring about reproductive isolation

The first steps in the process of speciation are a bit paradoxical when you think about it…how does one freely interbreeding species make the transition to two reproductively isolated, independent species? More specifically, how do intraspecific mating barriers become interspecific? And why even are there intraspecific mating barriers? Well, that last question is easier to […]
