Nick and collaborations in PNAS!

Congrats to grad student Nick Mason, lead author Kelly Zamudio, and former EEB PhD graduate Rayna Bell on their paper in the most recent issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: Zamudio, K. R., Bell, R. C., & Mason, N. A. (2016). Phenotypes in phylogeography: Species’ traits, environmental variation, and vertebrate diversification. P Natl Acad Sci Usa, http://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1602237113

Kelly presented this paper as part of the Sackler Colloquium: In the Light of Evolution X: Comparative Phylogeography. “In this review of recent phylogeography literature and trends in the field, we focus on three questions. First, how can phenotypes elucidate mechanisms underlying concordant or idiosyncratic responses of vertebrate species evolving ins hared landscapes? Second, what mechanisms underlie the concordance or discordance of phenotypic and phylogeographic differentiation? Third, how can  phylogeography contribute to our understanding of functional phenotypic evolution? We also highlight the importance of natural history collections as sources of phenotypic data over space and time.”Pheno_Phylo_Heuristic_v9_PI
