Lab-meeting on phenotypic plasticity, learning, sexual selection and mate preferences
This coming Wednesday (26 May), I wish to discuss a recent TREE-article by Charlie Cornwallis and Tobias Uller that recently came out. The title of this article is Towards an evolutionary ecology of sexual traits. I was one of the reviewers on this article, and I think they have some interesting things to say. Whether you agree or not with their general message, I think this paper should stimulate some discussion.
Also, postdoc Machteld Verzijden might send out one of her manuscripts about mate preference evolution in fish, that she want some input on. If she is able to finish this manuscript, she will send it out by e-mail to the group tomorrow (Tuesday).
