Lab-meeting next week?

This is a suggestion to anyone in the lab to think of a possible article for next week's lab-meeting on Wednesday. I will myself be busy planning the "Biology-Physics Interface"-workshop on Wednesday afternoon, so I will not have time to suggest an article. But I would strongly encourage "somebody" to suggest an article, and post the information here, on this blogg. Ideally, you should both write a few sentences (5-10) in a bloggpost and provide a link to the article so that it can be downloaded by members of our laboratory. So please feel free to suggest something for Wednesday next week!

  1. No one has picked a paper yet, so I thought I'd jump in. My first thought was to pick something from the new book, Dragonflies and Damselflies: Model Organisms for Ecological and Evolutionary Research. But next week will be a busy week, and I was instead turned on to a paper that is rather fun, and is PC in that it is open source.

    The paper is on "worm grunting", and is a very cool example on how humans take advantage of an antipredatory response in worms (such a think is not necessarily limited to humans). It also appears at first glance to be a good example of the value of multiple working hypotheses (something we all need to remember).
