Will we ever decide on a paper by a margin of more than one or two votes? 🙂

Male rhinoceros beetles (Trypoxylus dichotomus) from the study; control (left) and dsInR-injected (right).

The paper chosen for this week was the paper by Douglas Emlen and collaborators on “a mechanism of extreme growth and reliable signaling in sexually selected ornaments and weapons. If you don’t have access to the paper, just let me know via comment or email.

Tom Houslay has also written a great blog post on the paper, which should give us some insights and cool pointers for discussion. Check it out.

As usual, our meeting time is Tuesday 5PM EDT, and we will meet both usingGoogle+ Hangouts and the text chat room. Just follow the links if you have any questions.

Hope to see a full house!
