Congratulations to Cooper for the award his poster Hybridization and Gene Flow Between Migratory and Non-Migratory Avian Species won at EVO-WIBO (Evolution in Washington, Idaho, British Columbia, and Oregon). His poster was based on his research using ddRADseq data to look at hybridization and gene flow in Towhees.
Congratulations to Ethan for being awarded a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship. These three year fellowships are offered to graduate students who have demonstrated an aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering. Ethan’s dissertation work will explore the role of divergent natural selection along an elevational gradient in the speciation a genus of tropical montane kingfishers.
Ethan has a new publication in PeerJ on using data from museum collections to assess migration patterns in Painted Buntings (Passerina ciris).
