Reading for next meeting (March 4th)

Leave a comment

Hey everyone,

sorry for the super short notice, but hopefully we can still get to read them before the meeting next Monday, march 4th at 4:30PM. (if it’s too short notice, let me know and we can transfer it to next week).

The readings this week will be on the geography of speciation, and were chosen by David Winter, but I will be leading the discussion. They are two not-too-long papers that work well together. I would like to suggest we focus on the second one, but it references the first one considerably in making its argument, so let’s try to read and discuss them both:

FITZPATRICK, B. M., FORDYCE, J. A. and GAVRILETS, S. (2008) What, if anything, is sympatric speciation?. Journal of Evolutionary Biology, 21: 1452–1459.

MALLET, J., MEYER, A., NOSIL, P. and FEDER, J. L. (2009) Space, sympatry and speciation. Journal of Evolutionary Biology, 22: 2332–2341.

Again, sorry for the short notice, but I hope to see you all in a couple days!
