Visit from Molly Morris and Oscar Rios-Cardenas

Posted by Jessica Abbott
Next week our group will be visited by Molly Morris and Oscar Rios-Cardenas, as part of a STINT-funded collaborative project. They work on the evolution of mating behaviors, animal communication, alternative reproductive tactics and adaptive plasticity in swordtail and platy fishes (Xiphophorus, see picture). The project that we will be working on ties together two of my research interests: reproductive strategy polymorphism and intralocus conflict. We will namely try to investigate whether there is intralocus conflict between alternative reproductive tactics.

You can find our more about Molly and Oscar here: (in Spanish)

We have also published a paper together on intralocus tactical conflict, which is available here:
