Oct. 30th discussion: items of interest

Leave a comment

We hope to have a full house for today’s discussion, but in the meantime I wanted to post (and repost) some tidbits that might be of added value:

–  An excellent string of comments on today’s article for discussion can be found here, including several points made by the authors.

– Listen to this recent NPR Science Friday clip summarizing some of the rhinoceros beetle research of Doug Emlen and colleagues, and watch the accompanying “battling beetles” video below:


(or watch it on NPR’s site)

–  Tom Houslay has recently blogged about sexual selection. Read his post; it’s a good one!

If you would like to contribute to the discussion but are unable to join us for the video chat, please hop in our IRC chatroom early (can you tell I’m excited for this discussion?) and post your questions/comments/suggestions for improving the #EBJclub, and I will relay them to the video participants when we go live!
