I have been asked by the Australasian Evolution Society to provide some 'Research Highlights' for their newly launched website. The Research Highlights promote interesting recent research by evolutionary biologists in Australasia. To get more diversity in the types of research covered there will be two or three others writing too. My stories will go up every few weeks and I will endeavor to publish them here as well, probably with some additional comments. My first piece went up a few weeks ago and I've submitted my second, which should go up shortly. I'll post here as soon as it is.
