Sexual conflict terminology covered by the "Nature"-blog

Some of you have probably heard about the paper that former PhD-student Tina and current PhD-student Josefin recently published in Animal Behaviour, where they analyzed the biased terminology in the sexual conflict litterature, and found some striking patterns. This study has now been discovered by the Nature News Blog in a recent blog post. Our warmest congratulations to Tina and Josefin to their study, which has already gained some impact in the scientific community. Hopefully, their provocative article will help to improve the research practice and clean up sloppy terminology in this field in the future.
