On intralocus sexual conflict in hermaphroditic animals

Former lab-member Jessica Abbott, who defended her PhD-thesis in Lund in 2006 has a review-paper published in Proc. R. Soc. Lond. B., that can be found here. After finishing her PhD, Jessica moved for a two-year postdoc to Adam Chippindale's lab at Queens University in Canada, and then back to Sweden and Uppsala University (Ted Morrow's lab).

Jessica will visit the Biology Department in Lund on October 14 for a Thursday Seminar in the "Blue Hall" (14.00, Thursday 14 October 2010). One possibility would be to read her review-paper on our lab-meeting that week (Thursday October 13, at 10.15) to prepare for her talk. Here is the abstract of Jessica's article in Proceedings:
